Foulis man shot during robbery

first_imgA Foulis, East Coast Demerara man is currently hospitalised and nursing a gunshot wound to his shoulder, after three armed bandits pounced on him and his employer upon their return from the bank.Injured is 37-year-old Lukpaul Sukhai of Foulis Housing Scheme. According to reports, the incident occurred sometime around 15:00h on Friday.Guyana Times understands that Sukhai and his employer went to a city bank earlier in the day to withdraw money and then went to Camp Street, where from there the men drove back to Foulis, unaware that they were being followed.When they arrived in front of the contractor’s house, his wife and a relative came out and opened the gate. At that point, a white 212 Toyota motor car rushed up in front of the house and two men, one of whom was armed with handgun, immediately exited.The armed man then discharged a round at Sukhai, hitting him in his right shoulder. After being shot, and with his employer still in the car, the injured man drove away from house. The bandits then turned their attention to the businessman’s wife and the relative, Sumal Budhnarine.At the time, Budhnarine, 23, also of Foulis Housing Scheme, had a haversack which contained ,000 and three women’s top. The two bandits snatch the bag and rushed back into the car, where they had a third accomplice who drove them away.The injured Sukhai was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he has been admitted a patient. Even with a bullet lodged in his shoulder, the 37-year-old man is listed as stable.The Police have since launched an investigation into the robbery. No arrest has been made.last_img read more

Managers to receive yellow and red cards next season

first_img possible xi Referees can brandish cards to badly behaved managers How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return? Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade 2 It is hoped the measure will prevent managers from approaching referees How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures How Chelsea could line up against Southampton – what system will Lampard play? LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS Best clips, calls and talkSPORT moments of 2019, feat Hearn, McCoist and more ALTERED Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes NEW ERA center_img possible standings who plays? highlights smart causal Harvey said if the bad behaviour on the sidelines is more general, a referee can caution the entire coaching staff. If it continues, the referee will then caution the manager and they will have to leave the technical area. And if that does not work, the referee will send the manager to the stands with a red card.“We thought it should add to the clarity and hopefully better behaviour in the technical areas,” said Harvey.“This is not about creating a drama. It is about making sure behaviour doesn’t decline further.”As well as cards for managers, the FA has also announced the introduction of competition-specific suspensions for accumulated cards in the Premier League, EFL, National League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and FA Trophy – the Checkatrade Cup did this last season.Players who receive five yellow cards in the first 19 games in the Premier League and EFL, or 23 games in the National League, will get an automatic one-game ban. If they get 10 cautions in the first 32 Premier League games or 37 EFL and National League games they will also receive a one-ban game, and any player in any league who is cautioned 15 times in a season will also get a one-game ban.Again, these automatic sanctions do not apply to play-off games and there will be no cut-off dates in the Women’s Super League. They will receive automatic suspensions for accumulating cautions in multiples of five. Managers who behave badly on the touchline during games next season will be shown yellow and red cards, just like the players, the Football Association has announced.The pilot project, which builds on a review of the FA’s existing ‘technical area code of conduct’, will apply to the Premier League, English Football League and National League, as well as from the first round of the FA Cup, the Carabao Cup and Checkatrade Trophy. These ‘stage one warnings’ will also accumulate, as they do for players, and any manager who receives four warnings will receive an automatic one-game touchline ban.In the Premier League, however, managers will not be shown cards and their warnings will only be verbal.But unlike accumulated cautions for players, there will be no automatic reset after a certain number of games. Eight warnings will result in a two-match ban, 12 warnings will bring a three-match ban and 16 will lead to a misconduct charge with a sanction to be determined by a disciplinary panel.The exception to the no-reset rule will be play-off matches in the EFL and National League and the FA Cup Final.In a statement, the FA explained that the warnings will be issued for inappropriate language or gestures “which are an obvious show of dissent or an attempt to influence the decisions of the match officials”, kicking or throwing water bottles or clothing, sarcastic clapping, waving imaginary cards and so on.Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said rules for behaviour in the dugout or technical area are not new but the idea is to make the disciplinary procedure clearer to fans.

Angels on edge

first_imgANAHEIM – The Angels are sick and tired, dazed and confused. Confident just a few days ago they were on their way to a second World Series appearance in four seasons, the Angels have been hit hard from all angles and find themselves on the brink of elimination. An 8-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series Saturday night left the Angels down 3 games to 1 with Game 5 of the best-of-seven series set for tonight at Angel Stadium. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Angels manager Mike Scioscia gathered his team after the game and told them to look ahead. “If I told them in spring training they’d have four days to win three games and you go to the World Series, they’d say, ‘Let’s go for it,’ ” Scioscia said. “There’s no need for a gut-check. To get to this point, they’ve spilled blood and body parts on that field. This is a team that has battled as much as any I’ve been around. We need a three-game winning streak in the next four days to reach our goal.” Paul Konerko, just like he did Friday in Game 3, hit a home run in the first inning that gave the White Sox a 3-0 lead. White Sox starting pitcher Freddy Garcia, like Mark Buehrle and Jon Garland did in Games 2 and 3, threw a complete game and made the Angels offense look feeble. The three consecutive complete games were the first in a league championship series since the Mets’ Tom Seaver, Jon Matlack and Jerry Koosman did it in 1973. The Angels had just five hits, all singles except for a Casey Kotchman double. Not a single Angels baserunner even got as far as third base after the fourth inning. The Angels are hitting .177 as a team in the series. The Angels’ clubhouse oozes exasperation and frustration, which comes from more than just losing, but how they are losing. They lost Game 2 in large part because of a bad umpire’s call. They lost Game 3 because of superb pitching by the White Sox combined with poor Angels hitting. In Game 4 on Saturday, it was a little of everything. center_img “We’re absolutely not doing anything to get any rallies started, we’re not pressuring the defense,” Angels second baseman Adam Kennedy said. “They’re pretty much cruising through games. The fact that their manager is letting them pitch into the ninth is a sign they’re dominating. “Each guy has to go home tonight and figure something out and bring it tomorrow, because whatever we’re doing at the plate is absolutely not working.” The Angels’ most important hitters continue to slump through the series. Vladimir Guerrero was 0 for 4 Saturday, failing to hit the ball out of the infield. He is 1 for 16 in the series and is without an extra-base hit in the postseason. Leadoff hitter Chone Figgins was 0 for 4 Saturday and is 1 for 14 in the series. Guerrero said through an interpreter after Saturday’s game he is not frustrated, but Scioscia disagreed with the slugger. “He’s almost frustrated to a point where he’s beating his head against the wall, and doesn’t realize if he steps back, the doorway is just a couple feet to the right,” Scioscia said. And then there were the umpires and more questionable calls, all of which went against the Angels. The White Sox had two on and one out in the top of the first with the count 2-2 to Konerko. Angels starter Ervin Santana threw a breaking ball out of the strike zone and Konerko tried to check his swing. Home plate umpire Ron Kulpa appealed to first base ump Ed Rapuano, who ruled no swing even though replays appeared to show that Konerko did not check his swing. On the next pitch, Konerko connected for a three-run home run. In the second inning, the Angels had scored a run to cut their deficit to 3-1 and had runners on first and third with one out. Steve Finley hit into an inning-ending 4-6-3 double play, but Finley pointed to Kulpa as he ran toward first and again after he was thrown out. Replays showed Finley’s bat hit catcher A.J. Pierzynski’s glove on the swing, which is catcher’s interference. Had Kulpa made the correct call, Finley would have been awarded first base and the Angels would have had the bases loaded with one out and Adam Kennedy due up. Even without the correct call, Finley probably would have beaten the throw to first had he not turned to look at Kulpa on his way to first, costing the Angels a run. “I’ve never had catcher’s interference before,” Finley said. “I swung and I felt something grab the end of my bat. I probably should have taken off running, I would have beaten the play at first. But I’ve never had it happen before and my reaction was to turn and look at the ump.” In the fifth inning, replays showed that Angels reliever Scot Shields picked off Scott Podsednik at first base. Rapuano, however, missed the call and Podsednik eventually stole second and scored on a single by Carl Everett. “You’re not going to get calls at times,” Scioscia said. “Some calls tonight might’ve put us in better position to be where we wanted to be. But the bottom line is they got some hits with runners in scoring position and they beat us.” Angels starter Ervin Santana, the hero in the Game 5 victory over the Yankees only five days earlier, showed he’s still prone to rookie moments as he gave up six runs (five earned) in 4 innings.

Zuma: SA’s most important year

first_imgSouth African president Jacob Zuma andFifa president Sepp Blatter attending theWorld Cup final draw in Cape Town inDecember 2009.(Image: The Presidency)The first of January 2010 marked South Africa’s most important year since 1994, said President Jacob Zuma in the opening words of his New Year’s address to the nation.“Together as a nation we set the tone and made history in April 1994. We embarked on a phase of reconciliation and forgiveness, and worked hard to build one nation, united in its diversity.“We began the socio-economic transformation of our country to build an inclusive society, out of the racial and ethnic divisions of the past. We have done well in this regard, over the past 15 years.“The year 2010 is our next critical moment. We have won the greatest marketing opportunity of our time, the rights to host the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Together as all South Africans, we must make this one of the most successful projects we have ever undertaken as a nation!“The World Cup must revive the spirit of unity and patriotism in the same manner that the 1995 Rugby World Cup brought the nation together.“It must remind us that there is a lot to celebrate about our country. Our successes have made us an inspiration to the world in a manner that many South Africans do not even realise.“We have proven to the world that it is possible to emerge from a horrible conflict, and work together as various political parties, to build a successful, peaceful, stable, multiparty constitutional democracy.“Together we have built a country that proudly espouses non-racialism and non-sexism, and which enshrines the supremacy of the Constitution and the rule of law. Together we have built an accessible democratic State, founded on the values of human rights and freedoms. Among those who have played some part in these achievements are the opposition parties represented in our democratic parliament“Together we must make 2010 the year in which we renew our commitment to national unity and nation building. This we must do as all political parties, traditional leaders, business, labour, youth, sports bodies, women, the media, religious leaders and all sectors.“It must be a year in which we put South Africa first, and take forward our collective mission to shape this country into one of the most successful constitutional democracies in the world. It must be the year in which we work together to make the Soccer World Cup the biggest turning point in the marketing of our country.“The year 2010 must be the year in which for the first time, we all communicate positive messages about our country to the world – the successes and possibilities. We have to put the culture of negativity behind us.“Together we must ensure long-lasting benefits for the country. There is a lot to be gained from the World Cup. We can already see the fruits of the tournament. We have new magnificent stadia, roads and new-look international airports. Through the major boost to the construction industry, many of our people obtained work and training opportunities, and this helped to reduce the impact of the recession.“Working together we must ensure that the tournament enhances our country’s global competitiveness. It must contribute to long-term economic growth and the creation of decent jobs.“Fellow South Africans, as hosts, we must be welcoming and hospitable to the thousands of international visitors and soccer teams. We must all be active ambassadors of our country! We must support our National team, Bafana Bafana. With the nation behind them, they will perform well and make us proud.“Most importantly, we must make 2010 an exciting and most enjoyable year for all of us!“Happy New Year and Happy 2010 World Cup to you all!”Source: The Presidencylast_img read more

One million tax returns in record time

first_img24 July 2012 The South African Revenue Service (Sars) has reached the one-million mark for submitted income tax returns – just 22 days after the 2012 tax season opened on 1 July. Last year, it took five weeks to reach the one-million mark. Spokesman Adrian Lackay said Sars had received a total of 1 001 162 income tax returns by Monday morning. “For the corresponding period last year, Sars had received 681 497 tax returns,” Lackay said in a statement. “By 7:30am this morning, 319 665 more returns had been submitted compared to the same period last year. This represents an increase of 62% for returns submitted during the first three weeks of the tax season.R3.07-billion already refunded “The higher rate of submissions and much faster turn-around times in processing tax returns has enabled Sars to pay R3.07-billion in refunds to 501 096 taxpayers over the past 22 days,” Lackay said. This year there is again a strong migration to electronic filing via Sars branches or eFiling, as only 3 796 returns have so far been submitted manually (a decrease of 32% from last year). A total of 620 564 returns have been submitted via eFiling, which is 32% higher than for the same period last year. At branch offices, Sars has helped taxpayers across the country to submit 376 802 returns electronically.Submissions at Sars branch offices Returns submitted with assistance from Sars at branch offices are 82% higher than for the same period last year. This is because a far higher number of taxpayers approached Sars branch offices for assistance much earlier this year. Waiting periods and queues at the biggest Sars offices have been longer over the past three weeks. According to Lackay, the situation at branch offices is being monitored on a daily basis, and Sars will make additional resources available to assist taxpayers over the coming weeks. “Sars wants to thank all taxpayers who have already submitted their income tax returns for this year and wants to encourage all taxpayers to continue to submit returns early in order to avoid the last minute rush during the final days of the tax season.”New technologies for filing Sars is providing a range of new technologies to make filing a tax return even more convenient. These products are currently being tested with a sample group of taxpayers, and will be ready for roll-out over the coming weeks. These include an eFiling Application that allows taxpayers to complete and submit their ITR12 tax returns and receive their assessments on iPads and smartphones. Sars will also introduce an eFiling mobi site – sarsefiling.mobi – enabling taxpayers to complete and submit their ITR12 returns on their cellphones. Taxpayers who visit www.sarsefiling.co.za on their mobiles will have their phone routed to the mobisite. Sars has also developed a service called Help-You-eFile in which taxpayers can get access to a Sars contact centre agent while they are eFiling their return. The agent will guide the taxpayer through the process. With the consent of the taxpayer, the agent will be able to access the taxpayer’s browsing session and view exactly what the taxpayer is doing on their screen, enabling them to guide and help the taxpayer step-by-step in completing and submitting their ITR12 return on eFiling.Deadlines The 2012 tax season runs from 1 July 2012 to 31 January 2013. The deadline for taxpayers who submit their tax returns manually by post or by dropping it off in a Sars drop box is 28 September 2012. The deadline for all taxpayers who submit their returns electronically at a Sars branch is 23 November 2012. Non-provisional taxpayers who submit their returns via eFiling also have until 23 November 2012. Provisional taxpayers who submit their returns via eFiling have until 31 January 2013.

Installing Windows In a Foam-Sheathed Wall

Log in This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img UPDATED on February 26, 2019.Every now and then, a GBA reader posts the question, “How do you install windows in a wall with exterior rigid foam?”The answer to the question is surprisingly complicated. The best method will depend on several factors, including the answers to these questions:No matter which installation method you choose, you have to address two main challenges: fastening the window securely in place, and flashing the window to limit water entry.If you aren’t familiar with the distinction between “innie” windows and “outie” windows, you should read this article: ‘Innie’ Windows or ‘Outie’ Windows?Each approach has advantages. Outie windows provide deep interior stools that many homeowners appreciate, and outie windows are (arguably) easier to flash and easier to trim on the exterior. On the other hand, the innie approach does a better job of protecting window sash from the weather, and innie windows perform better from an energy perspective. If you’re planning to install mineral wool insulation on the exterior side of your wall sheathing, innie windows make the most sense. (For detailed instructions on installing windows in a wall with exterior mineral wool insulation, see Roxul ComfortBoard IS Installation Guide.)Once you’ve decided between innies and outies, you’ll discover that this decision will influence the location of your WRB. If your building has innie windows, you probably won’t be using the rigid foam as your WRB. Instead, you should use Zip sheathing, asphalt felt, or housewrap as your WRB. If you choose asphalt felt or housewrap, it should be installed between the wall sheathing and the rigid foam.If your building has outie windows, you should use the rigid foam or housewrap installed on the exterior side of the rigid foam as your WRB.
