EBD beheading…underwent psychiatric evaluationThe 25-year-old who reportedly beheaded his brother-in-law on Monday morning was subjected to a psychiatric evaluation and has since been detained in Police custody.The Grove, East Bank Demerara house where the murder took placeThis is according to the Divisional Detective Office of A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara), Superintendent Julius Wright, who told Guyana Times on Wednesday that the suspect, Anthony King, will most likely be processed for court this week.“He’s in custody. A psychiatric evaluation was done so he likely would be before court on Friday,” said Wright.King was arrested on Monday after he reportedly killed his sister’s husband at about 08:20h at the family’s Lot 1323 ‘Block Y’, Grove, East Bank Demerara (EBD).The dead man, 39-year-old Justin Peterkin of Paradise, East Coast Demerara (ECD) visited the area that morning when the incident occurred.When Guyana Times arrived at the scene, a neighbour, Daniel Boutrim, recalled that he ventured outside of his house and subsequently spotted King, who was holding a hammer.According to the neighbour, the suspect then entered the house and he subsequently heard a “knocking” sound which urged him to check again to see what was transpiring. He reportedly saw Peterkin lying motionless on the ground, being hammered and chopped about his body by his brother-in-law.“When I peep, I see he chopping away on the man head down here with a kitchen chopper and lashing the hammer on the knife,” Boutrim told this publication.After finishing the act, King reportedly left the yard and proceeded towards the street with the two weapons in hand. The neighbour said he went after the suspect and by then the Police arrived and took him into custody.
As he wandered the halls of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington last week, Rep. Joe Baca was struck by a father’s devotion. A wounded soldier from San Clemente told the Rialto Democrat how his father essentially shuttered his business so he could come and provide around-the-clock oversight of his son’s recovery. The war veteran appeared to be recovering well – a fact that obviously pleased Baca. “He was very fortunate,” Baca said in a phone interview. “I almost wanted to cry.” Baca said that while he was pleased to see the father’s effort, he wondered, “How many other soldiers don’t have the same opportunity?” Patients complained of a lack of sensitivity by doctors and staff members who evaluated the wounded. Some said they had to prove they were injured while others lamented the long lines for prescription drugs. Others said treatment from one hospital facility to another differed greatly, while others said National Guardsmen received treatment inferior to regular Army soldiers. “There has to be a lot more accountability and sensitivity,” Baca said, adding later, “This shouldn’t be about saving the government money.” On another note, Baca also said the Congressional Hispanic Caucus has mailed its letter to Bush asking for a meeting to discuss immigration reform. Letters have also gone to leaders of the House and Senate, he said. No sessions have yet been set up. “We’re making this one of our top priorities,” Baca said of the caucus. email@example.com (909) 386-3884160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Baca and other members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which he chairs, visited the Walter Reed hospital individually or in small groups last week as part of an effort by the group, which has endured some infighting over the past few months, to begin exerting some political clout. The hospital has come under scrutiny in the wake of a Washington Post report that revealed roach-infested conditions and shoddy outpatient care at what is supposed to be the Army’s premier treatment center for its wounded. Baca served in the Army as a paratrooper with both the 101st and the 82nd Airborne divisions from 1966 to 1968. But the congressman did not serve in the Vietnam War. After his tour of the hospital last week, Baca said he encountered numerous problems that concerned him. Late last week, Baca’s staff was compiling his notes for a letter that will be sent to the Pentagon. “We ask so much of our veterans,” Baca said. “They are willing to sacrifice everything. They deserve better when they come here.”
Asensio’s two long-range shots, the second cannoning in off goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic, had Spain three up before half-time in Elche, after Saul Niguez had earlier headed home.Croatia, abject at the back, were no better after the break. Asensio first threaded Rodrigo Moreno through to finish before supplying the corner for an unmarked Sergio Ramos to nod in number five.Isco then flashed a sixth into the top corner, again Asensio the provider.Two victories in four days mean Spain sit top of League A’s Group Two, with a six-point gap over both Croatia and England, who play each other in Rijeka next month.Brushing aside two of the World Cup’s top four teams, and one so emphatically, sends out its own message, but just as satisfying for La Roja will be the sense of pride restored.In particular, this display gave early vindication to Luis Enrique’s methods. Spain still dominated possession but they looked forward faster, pressed Croatia higher up and stretched them with balls wide and over the top.There was no sign of the ponderous build-up that suffocated them against Russia at the World Cup. There was no sign either of Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta and David Silva, who all retired in the summer, and are not yet being missed.Asensio was the star, his goal and trio of second-half assists fully justifying his start ahead of Iago Aspas.But Saul, who shone against England, was excellent too in midfield, departing to a standing ovation at the Estadio Martinez Valero, in the town where he was born.For Croatia, this was a humbling loss that leaves the current crop open to questions about how they sustain momentum following that superb run in Russia.Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, still at the top of their games, embraced Real Madrid and Barcelona team-mates in the tunnel and Croatia started brightly, with Ivan Santini missing two decent early chances from close range.Spain were more clinical. Ramos wafted a ball out to Dani Carvajal whose stabbed cross was met brilliantly by the arriving Saul.Asensio made it two with a crashing long-range drive and two minutes later, his left foot unleashed again, this one curling onto the bar and then in off the unfortunate Kalinic’s back.Croatia looked stoney-faced as they emerged for the second half but there was no improvement, either in their intensity or defending.Rodrigo raced clear and slotted through the legs of Kalinic before Ramos headed in, unchallenged from eight yards.Isco added a late flourish, receiving a pass from Asensio inside the box. He feigned to go one way but pushed the ball the other, before slamming it into the top corner to complete the rout.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Marco Asensio impressed as Spain crushed World Cup runners-up Croatia in Elche© AFP JOSE JORDANELCHE, Spain, Sep 11 – Spain’s identity crisis looks to be well and truly over after Marco Asensio inspired a 6-0 thrashing of World Cup runners-up Croatia in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday.Defeat to Russia in July prompted a change of coach and doubts about the Spanish passing style but after an impressive win over England at Wembley, Luis Enrique has now overseen a demolition of Croatia too.

2. Marcus Rashford v Davinson Sanchez – English talent Rashford has had heaps of praise since his breakthrough into the Manchester United side, and playing against Ajaxs compact team and high defensive line, he might fancy his chances. But, if Sanchez plays to his capabilities then Rashford could be nullified. The Colombian centre-back has a good turn of pace and times his challenges superbly. Watch out for him going forward too, as he loves a ball in behind the defence, a lung-busting break forward and packs an aerial threat at set-pieces too. 5 You can listen to live commentary of Ajax v Manchester United in the Europa League TONIGHT from 7pm, live on talkSPORT.At the Friends Arena in Stockholm, the two sides will become foes as the fight for silverware and a place in the Champions League group stage.To claim victory, star players will need to be on form, and the two teams have thrown up a number of interesting clashes between opposite numbers.But where are the key battles and how might they pan out? Click the right arrow above to find out… 5. Daley Blind v Kasper Dolberg – Coming up against his old team, Blind may not be relishing the challenge of keeping teen talent Dolberg quiet. Some plaudits may seem like hyperbole, but hes a very special talent. Blind is the man he will naturally move towards, and hell be happy to enter into a physical battle too. Blind will be aware any slip will let the youngster in, and with his superb technique, a goal could well be the result. 1. Paul Pogba v Davy Klaassen – Click the right arrow above to see four more key battles between Manchester United and Ajax stars… – For Ajax, Klaassen is a classy operator in midfield for the Dutch giants and has had an exceptional season, scoring 16 goals and making 10 assists. Hell be breaking forward and linking with his attacking team-mates, thanks to his smart passing, and impressive movement off the ball. Pogba will need to be on his toes all game to suppress the threat he provides, while his opponent is also ice cool on penalty duties. 4. Marcus Rashford v Andre Onana – As you can imagine from a goalkeeper schooled at Barcelona, Cameroonian shot-stopper Onana loves the ball at his feet and is happy coming off his line. But if Rashford can get at the goalkeeper, there is a big chance he can force an error. Its also worth keeping an eye on Onana, as his technique is a little unorthodox, but hes agile and athletic and developing well in the Netherlands. 5 5 3. Henrikh Mkhitaryan v Jairo Riedewald – Manchester United have been unlucky with injuries at the end of the campaign, but Ajax have been hit too. With Nick Viergever suspended for the final, Daley Sinkgraven should have stepped up but hes been ruled out. Riedewald took his place in their last match and is set to do so again. If Mkhitaryan can use his guile and experience to get the best of the 20-year-old, who is fairly versatile, then the Red Devils may have a way to get in on goal. 5 5

Chelsea dominated a goalless first half but were unable to find a finish to match their fine build-up play.Eden Hazard, restored to the starting line-up after impressing as a substitute in the midweek win over Dynamo Kiev, was the standout player in an entertaining first half and was involved in most of Chelsea’s best moments.The Belgian combined with Willian to tee up Ramires for a shooting chance on the break and then showed neat skills on the left to put in a cross that just eluded Diego Costa.He also had a dangerous shot blocked from a corner, but the best Blues chance fell to Ramires, whose brilliant 25-yard half-volley was tipped over by keeper Jack Butland.Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri fired an acrobatic early effort over the bar and Jon Walters forced a smart low save from keeper Asmir Begovic.Chelsea, missing manager Jose Mourinho because of his stadium ban, included Pedro alongside Willian and Hazard in an attacking midfield, meaning Cesc Fabregas and Oscar were left in the bench.Chelsea: Begovic; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Terry, Baba; Ramires, Matic; Willian, Hazard, Pedro; Costa.Subs: Amelia, Cahil, Mikel, Fabregas, Oscar, Kenedy, Remy.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Some exciting discoveries in Jerusalem and other near eastern sites emphasize the fact that archaeologists have much more to explore in the lands of the Bible.Jerusalem: The house of a wealthy family on old Mt. Zion from the first century was reported on Live Science and Science Daily. Archaeologists are surmising that the dwelling belonged to a priestly family. James Tabor indicated that this discovery can help shed light on Jesus in two ways: by characterizing the lifestyle of the rich He criticized, and by understanding their financial motivations for condemning Him to death.“If this turns out to be the priestly residence of a wealthy first century Jewish family, it immediately connects not just to the elite of Jerusalem — the aristocrats, the rich and famous of that day — but to Jesus himself,” Tabor said. “These are the families who had Jesus arrested and crucified, so for us to know more about them and their domestic life — and the level of wealth that they enjoyed — would really fill in for us some key history.”Jerusalem: Tia Ghose at Live Science reported a research project at a city dump outside old Jerusalem that provides insight into the animal sacrifice economy that thrived in Jesus’ day, when thousands of pilgrims would buy or bring animals to the Temple for holy day offerings. Isotopes in the bones can reveal the location of origin for the animals. “The study found that many of the animals found in the city dump came from rural desert regions hundreds of miles away, such as Arabia or Transjordan.”City of David: Eilat Mazar is shown holding up a portion of a golden medallion found in the City of David near the Temple Mount in coverage on Bible Places Blog. This “once in a lifetime” discovery of coins and other golden treasures from the Byzantine period (after the New Testament) was also reported on Science Daily. based on a press release from Hebrew University. The article also mentioned the Canaanite inscription found earlier nearby, possibly from the time of David (see Live Science coverage).Dalmanutha: Artifacts believed to be from Dalmanutha, mentioned only in Mark 8:10-12, have been found in the Ginosar Valley along the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. Mark mentioned the town as a place where Jesus confronted the Pharisees who demanded to see a miraculous sign. The town is near Magdala, home of Mary Magdalene. If the pottery remains and Corinthian capitals are indeed from Dalmanutha, it indicates a prosperous town thrived there in the first century.Abel Beth Maacah: It has an imposing tell (mound) at the north end of the Huleh Valley, near the border of Lebanon, but it has never been excavated—till now. It’s Abel Beth Maacah, at the crossroads of important trade routes in ancient and modern times. Bible Places Blog, quoting the ASOR Blog, describes the initial survey and first season that are providing hopes the site will prove as productive as Tell Dan and Hazor. The town is known from a moving story in 2 Samuel 20:14-22 about a woman who saved the town by appeasing David’s army captain Joab. The site appears to have prominent Aramean influence. One of the major towns of the northern kingdom of Israel, was destroyed in 733 BC by Assyrian conqueror Tiglath-pileser.Derbe: Mentioned in Acts 14, 16, and 20, Derbe is one of the last cities on Paul’s missionary journeys to be excavated. Alongside a photo of the impressive mound, Bible Places Blog pointed to a news article about a new excavaction at the site begun by Selçuk University. So far they have uncovered a possible early Christian church.We commend Live Science for reporting stories on Biblical archaeology, not just on DODO evolution, wanton sex, and liberal politics (as they have been wont to do, for which we cannot commend them).We would also point out to readers that archaeology is one of several active sciences dependent on intelligent design principles: determining the products of mind from the evidence of physical artifacts.

22 April 2014 The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is leading a group of South African companies to the 2014 Zimbabwe International Trade Fair starting in Bulawayo on Tuesday. Deputy Trade and Industry Minister Elizabeth Thabethe said on the weekend that export sales flowing from South Africa’s participation in the fair over the last three years, as reported by the companies involved, had amounted to R6.6-million in 2011, R7.1-million in 2012 and R55.6-million in 2013. “Last year, South Africa was voted the best foreign exhibitor stand due to its quality and design,” Thabethe said in a statement. “South African firms took up the largest single exhibition space of 800 square metres, followed by China with 600 square metres, clinching export deals valued at R55.6-million, up from R6.6-million recorded at ZITF 2011.” Participating companies have been assisted by the DTI through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance Scheme (EMIA). Thabethe said she expected the companies to return to South Africa with increased market knowledge about the Zimbabwean market, regional and international business contacts and new export orders. She said the week-long fair was an important platform for promoting intra-Africa trade as well as to strengthening relations between South Africa, its regional counterparts and the rest of the world. Countries represented in the fair include China, Brazil, Congo Brazzaville, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Poland, Bangladesh, India and Nigeria. The United States will also participate in this year’s fair after a long absence from the annual trade showcase. SAinfo reporter
