A linesman attached to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) is currently hospitalised after suffering from an electric shock outside Demico House (opposite the Stabroek Square), where technicians were replacing some old power poles.The man has been identified as Nara Singh, a resident of Garden of Eden, East Bank Demerara. He has been working with the power company for the past five years. The incident occurred around midday on Sunday.Guyana Times understands that Singh, said to be in his mid-30s, was on theGPL workers continuing to worker after one of their colleague suffered from electric shock while handling wires at the same spotground holding some wires, which suddenly became live with current, thus pelting him a few feet backwards. He reportedly landed on his back with the wires resting across his stomach.Singh’s colleagues were able to get the wires off his body, and he was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GHPC), where he remains unconscious.The GPL team, approximately two dozen members, reportedly started working sometime about 10:00h on the day in question, to replace the existing poles that were beginning to rot.A taxi driver who witnessed the incident told the Guyana Times that he was watching the men work on the two sets of poles on each side of Croal Street when he saw Singh get electrocuted.“I stand by my car watching them men work. It had one man on the post and this man (Singh) was at the bottom… I don’t know where this current come [from], but the way it come — and he had the wire in he hand — it pitch he back, and he drop on the ground and buss he head all,” the man said.The eyewitness went on to relate, “The wire drop pon he stomach, and all you see he left stunning pon the ground. You know how long they tek fuh pull the wire [off]. A man had to run till at the middle [of Longden Street] to get something and come and pull off the wire off he. Then a bus man pull up and they throw the man in the bus and rush he to the hospital.”According to the taxi driver, the incident traumatised the crew members, particularly the one who was up on the pole at the time the incident occurred.The fallen tree still there at midday Sunday“The man stick up on the post. He ain’t touching anything, and then the current come back on the wire, they had to block off the whole street…the wire start to smoke on the ground and so,” he stated.Guyana Times was told that the power had been cut from the wire and that it was lying on the ground for some time prior to the incident. One crew member was overheard saying that it reportedly came into contact with another live wire, thus electrocuting Singh. The man had said, too, that the current was so much that the wire had even wrapped around the linesman’s neck.However, a senior engineer attached to the power company told this newspaper that at this time they are uncertain as to what exactly transpired, since different versions of the incident are being related by the workers who were on ground.“We have to do an investigation, then we will know exactly what happened; because everybody in a state of shock right now…so they saying whatever coming to mind, but we have to wait and see,” the engineer said.Meanwhile, a vendor who used to ply her trade outside Demico on Croal Street complained that there is always some issues with those poles. She recalled that a few years ago a wire had drop alongside her vending booth and burst into flames.The woman further stated that a similar incident had occurred before, where a GPL worker was also electrocuted. “The man that de get pitch down with that wire the first time it happen, smoke come through that man ears… but that man ain’t dead,” she recalled.As the men resumed work shortly after the incident, one of the senior officers on the ground told this newspaper that the incident had him and all the workers stressed.“Right now we stressed out, but we still have to work,” the man said.While the men continued their work at the head of Croal Street, over on the intersection at Brickdam and Avenue of the Republic, a tree that had been located in the compound of the St Andrew’s Kirk) had fallen out on the roadway, taking down part of the fence along with nearby power lines.However, <

Televisions, computer monitors and tires, which are now subject to stringent regulations and additional disposal fees, have particularly increased. Edgar and investigator Chris George spend their days trying to track down dumpers and haul them to federal court. This week, cleanup crews filled industrial-size trash bins with assorted garbage including 111 tires picked up from the same dry wash. Edgar figures two or three tire shops or truck stops may be responsible. SAN BERNARDINO – Trucks are illegally dumping an increasing amount of trash in the mountains of the San Bernardino National Forest. “It happens all over the forest: Lytle Creek to Idyllwild,” said David Edgar, the forest’s hazardous-materials specialist. “It’s so prevalent, I can take you out on any forest road and find a dump site.” Illegal dumping has been a problem in the forest for decades but has dramatically increased in recent years. Mounting fees at public dumps and recycling centers may be a contributing factor.

Ter Stegen had the same role for the Blaugrana last season, when he did not even make a single appearance in La Liga.He concedes playing second fiddle to Claudio Bravo is not always easy, even if he feels the faith of coach Luis Enrique.The fact he played in the Champions League final and continues to appear in that competition is enough to prove that, although he would rather play more than just a handful of games each month.“It’s difficult because you don’t get the rhythm that you would like,” he said. “Of course I want to be playing more.“If the situation stays the way it is, then of course we’ve got to talk about it at some stage.“In the long run, it’s very tough for a goalkeeper of my age.” Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has fallen out of favour at the Camp Nou 2 2 German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen admits he will have to consider his future if he does not start to get more game-time for Barcelona.The 23-year-old has been Barca’s cup goalkeeper this season, featuring eight times in the Champions League, making six appearances in the Copa del Rey and starting only four Primera Division matches.It has been rumoured the former Borussia Monchengladbach custodian could move to Liverpool next term and, while he does not want to comment on any rumours, he accepts his future in Spain is far from clear.“I’m not considering myself with other clubs because the situation doesn’t currently oblige me to,” he told sport1.de.“Football is my job and all that matters is the present, the next game.

The local problem areas are the mountain passes, in particular along Interstate 5 through Newhall and Castaic, Richardson said. Winds were clocked up to 45 mph in the passes, according to the National Weather Service, which issued a red-flag warning, indicating a high fire danger in the region through Wednesday. High winds also were reported in the Gorman area, about 35 miles to the north and served by local firefighters.

You’re all set! SANTA CLARITA – A beefed up firefighting force was on standby Monday in Santa Clarita as high winds whipped through canyon passes, priming brush fire conditions. So far, this season, the Santa Clarita Valley has been spared the brush fires that come each year, wiping out wide swaths of acreage and threatening hillside communities. But the risk continues even in winter months, when it’s dry and windy, Battalion Chief David Richardson of the county Fire Department said Monday. “We’ve been lucky this year. Luck, that’s all it is,” Richardson said. “There’s plenty of dry grass and brush out there. We’ve had no rain.” Regular fire crews were augmented by additional fire patrols and a water tender as well as backup from the California Department of of Forestry, which sent a strike team of five four-person engines and a leader, Richardson said.

Eoin, author of the Artemis Fowl series for young readers, is bringing a group of storytellers for a series of performances throughout Northwest Donegal that will include a visit to the islands of Arranmore and Tory. Eoin is coming to Donegal at the invitation of a group of local artists and writers who proposed the county as a magical location suitable for Eoin’s Once Upon A Place storytelling tour.He will join Joe Brennan, Malachy Doyle, Patricia Forde, Alan Nolan and Marion Rose McFadden for events in Glenveagh and the islands, while storytellers will also visit schools in Buncrana and take part in workshops for the Ramelton Storytelling Festival.‘When we put out the call for proposals to be part of the Once Upon A Place programme in June of last year, we were delighted to receive no less than three from Donegal, which has such a strong tradition in children’s literature,’ said Eoin Colfer.‘So we decided to bring all the strands together in a Donegal programme that stretches the length and breadth of this beautiful county.’ Eoin and the team will be taking part in a special event at Glenveagh on the evening of 24th September to mark the launch of this year’s Wainfest, Donegal Libraries’ children’s books festival.‘Donegal County Library Service is delighted to be welcoming Eoin and the team to Donegal for this special evening in a magnificent setting,’ said Karen Sheehy of Donegal County Libraries.‘Wainfest is an important festival in our annual calendar that gives children all over the county the opportunity to engage with the arts on a meaningful level and we are thrilled to have Laureate na nÓg launch our 2015 programme.’On the 25th, Eoin and the team will take a boat to Arranmore and Tory islands, where they will meet local children and take part in storytelling sessions.On the same day, author-illustrator Alan Nolan will travel to Buncrana to run a day of workshops at St. Oran’s National School.Local storyteller Joe Brennan has also been working with students from St. Oran’s throughout the month of September.

A MILD-mannered pensioner threatened and robbed at his Donegal home has been admitted to hospital suffering from the stress of the incident.Gentle George Moore, who is 87, was one of the victims of the spate of attacks in the east of the county.He had a knife waved at him and he was shaken at his home. Although his premises now has a state-of-the-art alarm and lights system, friends told Donegal Daily that George is now suffering from shock. George had appeared at a public meeting in Manorcunningham two weeks ago alongside other victims of the sickening burglary attacks.He is pictured here at that meeting.Last night as hundreds of people turned out again to vow to prevent more incidents, Mr Moore wasn’t there.“He is suffering from shock,” said one friend. “George is the salt of the earth. He wouldn’t harm a fly but he just hasn’t got over what happened. He was left traumatised and we think he is suffering delayed shock after the incident.“That’s what happens to good people when these evil people attack an innocent elderly person. It leaves them traumatised.“This is what happens. It’s just dreadful.”Another friend said: “You couldn’t meet a more innocent man. Everyone is praying for George and we hope he gets out of Letterkenny hospital soon.“The whole community is right behind him and his family.” People right across the communities of Donegal are being invited to join a community Text Alert scheme in a bid to crack down on the criminals.A meeting will take place at the resource centre in Manor next Monday at 9pm. A report on last night’s meeting is in our news section on Donegal Daily.HEARTACHE AND ANGER AS BURGLARY VICTIM ‘GENTLE GEORGE’ TAKEN TO HOSPITAL was last modified: February 27th, 2014 by John2Share 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:burglary victimeast DonegalGeorge Moore
Responsibility – integrity – honesty – respect – healthy choices. Those are the values of a bygone generation. Do we need science to tell us that our grandparents were right? PhysOrg reported that “Teen sexual activity and gambling [is] associated with taking nonprescribed medications to get high.” And Live Science reported, “Coed Dorms Fuel Sex and Drinking.” Some 90% of college dorms are now coed. A new study of 500 students from five college campuses, published in the Journal of American College Health, found that students in coed dorms were 2.5 times more likely to engage in binge drinking weekly. “Perhaps unsurprisingly, the study found students in coed dorms were significantly more likely to have had multiple sexual partners in the past year,” Science Daily added. “Pornography use was also higher among students in coed dorms.” The profligate students were not necessarily correlated with frats or sororities. Students in gender-specific dorms were usually placed there by the administration, not by their own choice. That sounds so 1950.When you find something incredibly obviously stupid going on in public life, that makes no sense at all, and produces terrible consequences, you can usually find a Darwin-based liberal policy behind it. What’s Darwin got to do with the above stories, you ask? Well, since the 1960s, Judeo-Christian values have been marginalized in society under the guise of separation of church and state. Universities have stepped on themselves to remove anything resembling the Ten Commandments. Simultaneously, the Church of Darwin has been preaching in their sanctuaries (the school classrooms) that we are all evolved animals and that selfishness and promiscuity are just natural. If they find the consequences distasteful, well, duh, what did they expect? Did they expect the children of tolerance and liberation and selfishness to become altruistic scientists? Teach young people that they are mere animals and they will act like them. When the subjects outnumber the researchers, Darwinistic science will lead to its own demise – in the Animal Farm.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
