Following her fast-finishing second to RASHAIDA over the straight-five course on August 15, LITTLE RHEA is expected to come into her own and win today’s feature race over 1300 metres for the Henry George Harrison Sr Memorial Cup at Caymanas Park.The race, run in memory of the late trainer Henry ‘Rigg’ Harrison, is confined to native-bred four-year-olds and up, non-winners of two.Trained by Ryan Darby, LITTLE RHEA caught the eye at long odds in her previous race, when closing rapidly for second, a length adrift of RASHAIDA. With that performance under her girth, she will be among the fancied runners in the nine-horse field, which includes BATTLE SONG, who was only a length and a quarter behind her in fourth that day.Both horses should come in for a lot of support, along with the recent course winner, ROYAL GIRL, and UNCLE CHUBBY. But with LITTLE RHEA having advertised her well-being, the 4-y-o filly by War Marshall out of Princess Akeem, owned and bred by Phillip Azar, is ready to deliver with Kerry-Gayl Robinson again in the saddle.True, she is without a victory in 10 races this season. But she has the ability to beat non-winners of two, based on her short-head second to SHEER MADNESS over 1100 metres back in January, leaving some decent horses such as GLORIOUS CAUSE and FIFTYONESTORM behind.LITTLE RHEA is expected to sit off the early pace, which will likely be set by the speedy ROYAL GIRL, with former champion Wesley Henry aboard, and BATTLE SONG, with in-form Aaron Chatrie aboard. The Victor Williams-trained BATTLE SONG should prove the stronger of the two pacesetters leaving the furlong pole, but by then, LITTLE RHEA will be finding her best strides. She should outfinish BATTLE SONG in the last 100 metres for the victory.Other firm fancies on the nine-race programme are PROLIFIC PRINCESS to go one better in the first race for maiden three-year-olds, down-in-class FRANKENSTORM in the second, as well as HOLOGRAM SHADOW in the third, NATASHADONTPLAY in the knotty-looking fifth race over 1500 metres and PRINCESS SALLEMA in the closing race.
As investigations continue into the execution-style killing of two men at Lower Pomeroon River in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), investigators late Monday evening found weapons, ammunition and a quantity of narcotics that are assumed to be related to the crime.Items that were found near the Pomeroon crime sceneOne 9mm pistol and magazine, one .38 revolver, 16 live 12-gauge cartridges, 21 live .38 rounds, .32 rounds, two 9mm spent shells and 51 1\2 grams of cannabis were found. These items were recovered in close proximity to where the incident occurred at Grant Stelling, Lower Pomeroon. The Police had deployed a high-level investigative team to the area to assist with investigations.Up to press time, two persons were in custody, including Cilicia Williams, the wife of Ambrose Baharally.Baharally, called “Jadge” of Grant Stelling Hope and 23-year-old Martin Goddete of Friendship, Canal Lower, Pomeroon River were said to be imbibing when they were shot to the head by two men known to them about 15:30h.Williams, a mother of six, told Police that Goddete visited their home around 09:30h and after some time, her husband and him began to drink “High Wine” on a culvert by the river.The widow further divulged to Police that around 15:10h on Sunday, she saw the suspects drive up in a boat and they subsequently shook her husband’s and his friend’s hands. She said the group of men were having a conversation and were in high spirits. Williams added that she then left the men and went to tend to her children when she heard two loud bangs and then discovered her husband and his friend falling to the ground.The gunmen reportedly headed east on the river immediately after the act.However, contrary to the widow’s report, a farmer, who is a witness in the case, told Police that he did not see any men in a boat as the woman had said. His story was quite different from that of Williams. He reported that he heard a third gunshot after the two men fell to the ground.Meanwhile, Police continue to comb the Pomeroon River in an effort to find leads that may solve the case.Baharally was a father of six while Goddete lived with his parents. The mother of Goddete had told media operatives that she just wanted her son’s soul to rest in peace and would leave everything in the Almighty’s hands. She said she was not aware that her son had any old grievances with anyone at no time and recalled he left to spend the day with Baharally.Police from G Division are currently hunting for one suspect called “Wood” from Shell Beach, Essequibo.

An American priest with Donegal roots stole €98,000 from his US parish to fund nights out with men he met on gay dating app Grindr, it has emerged. Fr Joseph McLoone — whose parents both emigrated to the States from Co Donegal — is said to have stolen the cash from St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, over a six-year period.According to The Washington Post, the 58-year-old also used the near €90,000 to pay for a beach house in Ocean City, New Jersey, it is claimed. Investigators say when the Archdiocese of Philadelphia confronted Fr McLoone about the cash, he admitted paying for “personal relationships” with other men with the church funds.A police complaint, filed in court, says McLoone sent thousands of dollars to men he met on Grindr using online payment methods such as Square and J-Pay.The Chester County District Attorney said in a statement: “Father McLoone held a position of leadership and his parishioners trusted him to properly handle their generous donations to the church.“Father McLoone violated the trust of the members of St Joseph for his own personal gain.”The priest has been charged with 18 counts, including multiple counts of felony theft. He was arrested this week and is currently out on bail.Priest with Donegal roots stole almost €100k to pay boyfriends, court told was last modified: August 23rd, 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) Tags:AmericacourtdonegalPriest

One touchdown came from 9 yards out, when he broke three different tackles; the other on a 58-yard scamper. It’s the second week in a row he has run for over 100 yards. It wasn’t the prettiest win for the the Spartans, but beauty doesn’t show up in the box score. “It was a sloppy game, but we’ll take it.’ Wheeler said plainly. “My (two) defensive coordinators deserve much of the credit tonight,’ he said. “They made the difference. It might be David’s team, but Mike Williams and Craig Young deserve lots of credit.’ @Tagline: Rick Mathauser 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GLENDALE — With the consistent play of a tenacious defense and timely running by LaVelle Peterson, the La Canada High School football team dominated its game with quick strikes to beat Glendale High school. The defense, led by last year’s Rio Hondo League MVP David Hopkins, spent the majority of the game on the field dealing with Glendale’s rushing attack. In addition to helping stop the Nitros’ running game, Hopkins also had a 22-yard interception return for a touchdown. “This is David’s team,’ Spartans coach Rich Wheeler said after the game. “When David talks, everybody listens. His interception return put the game out of reach for us.’

POMONA – Two new suspects were charged with murder on Tuesday in connection with the 2001 slaying of a Cal Poly Pomona student.The charges against Markeisha Dixon and Henry Singer include special circumstances that could bring them the death penalty if they are convicted of killing 20-year-old Christina Burmeister.Prosecutors on Tuesday said they believe Dixon is the woman caught on videotape withdrawing money from Burmeister’s bank account on the night the sorority girl disappeared.Deputy District Attorney John Monaghan would not reveal Singer’s connection to the slaying, but he did say investigators now believe they have arrested everyone involved in the killing.Burmeister, a member of Cal Poly’s Chi Omega sorority, left home in Cerritos on Aug. 17, 2001, for a fraternity party in Pomona. She never made it. She was found slashed to death in her truck the next day in a turnout off Highway 39 above Azusa.The only evidence detectives had to go on was a discarded cigar butt found on the floorboard of the truck and descriptions of a hooded woman who used Burmeister’s ATM card at a Montclair bank.The case went unsolved for three years until detectives earlier this year linked DNA on the cigar butt to James Winslow Dixon, a Pomona man who worked near two fraternity houses on Holt Boulevard.Dixon was arrested and charged in February.Markeisha Dixon is his wife.Both Markeisha Dixon, 24, and Singer, 27, made brief appearances Tuesday afternoon in Pomona Superior Court, where they learned of the charges against them.Besides murder, prosecutors filed special circumstances of murder during a kidnapping and robbery.The special circumstances carry a punishment of either the death penalty or life in prison without parole.Judge Jack Hunt appointed lawyers to represent the pair and postponed an arraignment until Jan. 6. Both are being held without bail.Burmeister’s family came to court Tuesday and waited more than six hours to catch a glimpse of the two suspected killers.Burmeister’s mother, Rosi, said it was satisfying to see the 4-year-old investigation still bearing fruit, though the timing of the arrests is bittersweet.Christina would have turned 25 this week.Rosi Burmeister said she still hasn’t heard any explanation as to why these people would have killed her daughter.“It’s not making any sense,” she said. “It was a crime of opportunity, and Christina was at the wrong place at the wrong time.” Charles Uhalley and James Horan, the attorneys appointed to represent the duo, declined to comment on the charges, saying they had just received thousands of pages of police reports and had not yet had a chance to review them.Roger Whitenhill, who represents James Dixon, also shed no light on the arrests, saying, “This whole thing is a surprise to me.”Monaghan said prosecutors will announce in mid-January whether they will seek the death penalty for James Dixon. A decision on Singer and Markeisha Dixon will probably not be made until after their preliminary hearing, which has not yet been scheduled. firstname.lastname@example.org (909) 483-9325

Mumbai, Dec 31 (PTI) Nineteen-year-old Vedangi Kulkarni wants 2018 to be a special year. The last few months of 2017 have seen her clock hundreds of kilometres on bicycle, almost every day, in pursuit of her dream.She now wants to be the youngest and fastest woman to cycle around the world by completing a 29,000-km journey solo and unsupported within 130 days.It will take her across all continents, except South America and Antarctica, and put her through the most testing conditions that exist on the planet.This is definitely not the rosy stuff the dreams of 19-year-olds are made of.”It is going to be super cool, I am very excited about it,” a nonchalant Vedangi, who studies sports management at Bournemouth University, told PTI recently before setting out on a 1,400-km training ride from Mumbai to New Delhi.Call it her way of ringing in the New Year.The young cyclist, who hails from Pune, plans to start her record attempt in June 2018 from Perth in Australia, and has divided the campaign into five phases. In the first phase she will cycle across Australia upto Brisbane, from where she will take a flight to begin the second phase from Wellington to Auckland.From Auckland, she will fly to Anchorage in Alaska, and cycle eastward to Montreal.Then a flight to Lisbon, and she will start the most arduous part of her ride — a 14,520-km leg across Europe and Asia which will take her through 10 countries before reaching Ulan Bator in Mongolia. Then she would fly back to Perth, the start-finish line.advertisement”There are certain laid-down norms (by Guinness World Records) in order to qualify (for getting into the record book for cycling around the world). I am only adhering to them,” she said.Paola Gianottis 2014 record of cycling around the world in 144 days will certainly be on her mind. In the mens category, Mark Beaumont holds the record for completing the journey in 78 days. To date, no Indian — man or woman — has attempted to break these records.A keen footballer in her school days, Vedangi got hooked onto cycling, courtesy a ride in Himachal Pradesh. She followed it up with a solo ride along the Manali-Leh- Khardungla top-Drass route in 2016.After arriving in the UK for a sports management course, her plans to attempt a world record began to take shape. Every weekend and vacation was spent logging hundreds of kilometres on bike.”I met very interesting people and read a lot before finalising my plans. You need help because of the huge amount of logistics involved, and I am alone all through the journey,” she said.In New Delhi, she will try to meet potential sponsors and also government officials, whose help would be needed for the paperwork needed to cross continents on two wheels, solo.

Renesas Electronics announced two new PMBus compliant, fully digital DC/DC controllers that provide single output point-of-load conversions for FPGAs, DSPs, ASICs, network processors and general purpose system rails. The ISL68300 with integrated MOSFET drivers and ISL68301 with PWM output simplify designing power supplies for data center, wired and wireless communications, and factory automation equipment. The ISL68300 can drive discrete external MOSFETs directly, while the ISL68301 pairs with Renesas’ smart power stages or DrMOS power stages to create a complete voltage regulator solution.The ISL68300 and ISL68301 digital controllers feature a high-speed current share bus that parallels up to eight controllers in an 8-phase 240A+ current share configuration. Both controllers implement Renesas’ digital ChargeMode control modulation, which responds to load transients in a single switching cycle, and provides an inherently stable control loop without requiring external compensation. This modulation architecture significantly reduces output capacitor requirements and minimizes Vout undershoot and overshoot.Engineers can use the PowerNavigator GUI with the ISL68300 and ISL68301 to simplify power supply setup, sequencing, configuration and monitoring, including all device parameters and telemetry. Full schematic designs are completed in minutes, and the GUI with PMBus makes it easy to control the entire design and change features without soldering components or rework. To download the PowerNavigator GUI, please visit: www.intersil.com/powernavigator.In a typical FPGA power supply, the ISL68300 and ISL68301 digital controllers provide single output 10A to 40A+ for auxiliary rails, DDR memory, and system rails. The companion Renesas digital multiphase controllers use smart power stages to provide dual output 15A to 70A, or higher core power.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Mouser: STM32H7 MCUs with Arm PSA protection for connected devicesNext IBASE: extended temperature SBCs powered by NXP i.MX 6Dual Cortex-A9 processor
