first_imgIN DONEGAL: JOSEPH MCCABETWO of the North’s most wanted criminals are living in Co Donegal.Convicted rapist Joseph McCabe (29) and violent burglar Casey Morgan (18) had been living in Burtonport.They are so dangerous Gardai and the PSNI have said they should not be approached. The pair have been staying in a caravan beside a home after asking the unsuspecting person living in the house if they could stay there.Now they are living at an address in Dungloe.Their pictures have been released by Northern police.Gardai detained the men and a judge ordered them to stay at an address in Dungloe so they could monitor their movements. Morgan has been missing in breach of his licence conditions in the North since the morning of March 13 last.A PSNI spokesman said: “Police have taken the step of warning the public about a high-risk violent offender, Casey Morgan, and to ask for assistance in identifying his current whereabouts as there is a licence recall order out for his arrest and he poses a high risk of causing serious harm.”He is described as being around 5ft 11in, of medium build, with short dark brown hair, and he has a pierced left eyebrow.When last seen he was wearing dark tracksuit bottoms, a white sweat top with red and black bands, a black zip jacket, black trainers and a camouflage-print baseball cap.Registered sex offender Joseph McCabe was out of jail on licence after serving half of a 14-year prison sentence when he went missing on April 2. Belfast man McCabe was jailed for 14 years in 2006 for raping and burgling a 64-year-old woman in her north Belfast home as she lay in bed reading.At the time, the sentencing judge said that McCabe had subjected his victim to a “terrifying, prolonged ordeal.”The judge described the attack as a “violent sexual offence carried out with significant gratuitous violence”.A PSNI spokesman said: “Joseph McCabe (29) is described as being 6ft tall, with short, dirty, fair hair.” CASEY MORGAN: WANTEDREVEALED: VIOLENT RAPIST AND BURGLAR PAL LIVING IN DONEGAL was last modified: May 5th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:REVEALED: VIOLENT RAPIST AND BURGLAR PAL LIVING IN DONEGALlast_img read more

first_imgOAKLAND – A couple of weeks ago, you wouldn’t have bet on the Angels’ pennant chances. You wouldn’t have bet on the Angels’ pennant chances with Arte Moreno’s nickel. Now, all of a sudden, the Angels are the team to beat in the AmericanLeague playoffs. The smart-money pick. The club to fear. The team to beat. I say this not merely because, as long as New York, Boston, Chicago andCleveland are beating each other up for in a fight for the other three slots, the Angels are the only team certain to be in the American League playoffs. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 I say this because as much as those other teams have to play for, andas well as the Indians have played lately, nobody has played as well asthe Angels in the 10-1 streak that took them from a division tie with Oakland to Tuesday’s clincher here. Nobody will go into the playoffs next week as well-rested, with a pitching rotation as carefully arranged, or as confident as these L.A. boys from Anaheim. At first, Tuesday’s wild celebration seemed over-the-top, unseemly for a clubhouse full of Angels who won a World Series and were reminded in last year’s first-round sweep by Boston how quickly division-title champagne can evaporate. Then you realized why the party was so hearty. It was abject relief at the end of a harder-than-expected regular season. And it was all-out optimism going into October. “I feel much better this year than last year,” Mike Scioscia said shortly before Bengie Molina pulled the most extreme prank of the celebration by dumping a cooler full of ice over the manager’s head. center_img In the other dugout the next afternoon, Oakland manager Ken Macha was talking about why Scioscia should feel good going into his third playoffs in four seasons. “I just look at this,” Macha said, and then he served up two platefuls of “this.” “(The Angels) have both (Scot) Shields and (Kelvim) Escobar availablefor a few innings coming out of the bullpen, and (Francisco) Rodriguez to close the games off; a guy like (Bartolo) Colon, a dominant pitcher, (who in) five games will probably get two starts,” Macha said. “They have great pitching, they certainly play great defense; they’ve got great speed, so they can manufacture runs; and they’ve got a big bat (Vladimir Guerrero’s) in the lineup …” Macha added: “I look at the teams that are out there right now, there’s not one team you look at and say, ‘Wow.’ ” But that’s the point: No American League contender compares with National League St. Louis for top-to-bottom quality and consistency. Each has ahole. Each is hot and cold. Given that, you take the hottest right now. A couple of weeks ago, the Angels couldn’t hit the ball hard enough to break the neighbors’ window. Fans didn’t just have reservations about thebullpen, they had a regular table with a view of the Shields-Rodriguezmayhem. Then this: In the 11 games that ended Tuesday, the Angels averaged nearly six runs a game and were invulnerable in relief with Escobar taking heat off Shields and Rodriguez. The Angels don’t hit enough home runs to frighten anyone, you say? OK, with 140 homers, they’re 10th in the American League. Know where they ranked the year they won the World Series? They were 10th in the American League. Of the past decade’s World Series winners, half finished in the bottom half of their league in home runs. Wednesday, the champagne was still in the air in the visitors’ clubhouse at the Oakland Coliseum, red “2005 MLB Playoffs” sweatshirts had been draped over the backs of players’ chairs, and Angels chattered while watching the Red Sox on TV. Meanwhile, in the home clubhouse, the silence was broken mainly by attendants unspooling tape to seal up boxes of equipment. Scioscia’s big challenges for the week before the Tuesday playoff opener will be to avoid over-resting his regulars, and to decide which of his five starters to move to the bullpen. “It’s a nice problem,” he said of the second one. The manager filled his day-after-clinching lineup card with bench players and watched the Angels lose to the Athletics 6-1. For one night, at least, he wasn’t concerned about the now-real possibility of stealing a round of playoff home-field advantage by besting the Yankees’ and Red Sox’s records. “What’s important is how you’re playing, not where or who,” Scioscia said. That’s why the Angels are the team to beat. Kevin Modesti’s column appears in the Daily News three days a week.

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 18 Sept 2015 – The ‘In The Pink’ campaign is announced and is set to be the largest event of TCI’s Cancer Society year during the month of October. The shopping extravaganza brings mainly women together to make stylish purchases in one of the top resort suites in the Turks and Caicos with proceeds going to the Cancer patients in the TCI. President of the National Cancer Society, Rosemary Jolly, said there are approximately 191 people who receive financial assistance and moral support from the organization; of that, 45% are breast cancer patients. During a press conference held at the Regent Palms Thursday, In the Pink, which is in its seventh year was described as a campaign that donates a significant amount of money to the Society; between $20-25 thousand dollars was raised to aide in cancer patient care.‘In The Pink’ coordinator and brain-child, Karen Whitt spoke about the purpose of the event saying, “it was created to raise cancer awareness in particular breast cancer awareness, as well as a fundraising initiative for contributing to those in need.” Whitt mentioned some of the fun things this year at ‘In The Pink,’ such as a partnership with Lee Ingham of KONK Apparel who created a specially designed t-shirt for ‘In The Pink’ which is slated for October 10, 2015 at the Regent Palms. Whitt shared that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the cancer society. Also on the list of activities, an ‘In The Pink’ after party where both men and women can join in the fun for a worthy cause.

first_imgNxtbook Media already has a handful of publishers using its Liberty mobile product, which has been available for a little over a year, but there’s not much opportunity right now, admits Marcus Grimm, marketing director. “Usage is low,” he says. “It’s more about planting your flag in the ground and letting your readers know that you care about the mobile space.”While no one can predict whether people will prefer or even choose to read magazines on mobile devices in the next few years, readers are already being fractured into many different categories. Grimm believes “100 percent” in figuring out how to take the PDF supplied by publishers and crack it affordably into as many different formats as possible. “In today’s world,” he says, “there are so many different ways to render your content. You really have to step back, look at the content, and consider where a particular piece will be best received. Longer-format content plays well in a digital magazine, for example, while shorter formats play well on a Web site.”Until that answer is clear, suppliers and publishers alike must make sure they don’t fall back too many steps. Popular Science is working on mobile initiatives to get its content onto the iPhone and other devices but is holding back on making its entire magazine or its just-announced PopSci Genius Guide quarterly supplements available on the mobile platform. “We want the publication to be seen at regular size,” says editor-in-chief Mark Jannot. “But we don’t want to wait until the right mobile device is available and then have to put something together. We’re in the midst of a transition period.”BACK TO MAIN PAGE Mobile is clearly where digital publishing is heading, according to Zinio’s Rich Maggiotto. Experimentation will continue, though, because no one has yet figured out the right business model for making money in mobile. “I do know one thing for certain,” he says. “Giving it away for free is not a business model.”The market saturation of mobile devices is huge, with more than three billion units currently in use worldwide. Given the capabilities of those devices, including e-readers, that are on the market today, suppliers and publishers alike recognize that they’re not yet a good fit even for flat print magazine replicas let alone for the rich layout of multimedia digital versions. Magazines publishers use a two-page spread layout to communicate information visually. If you can’t view that layout on the mobile device due to the screen size (and, in the case of Amazon’s Kindle, it lacks color), the reading experience is not particularly satisfying.But a surge in mobile delivery of magazines is clearly going to happen. Maggiotto expects some “pretty phenomenal things” to happen over the next 24 months. A lot of companies will be following up with new and different display technologies to compete for market share. And what publisher won’t want to tap into such an enormous, involved audience?last_img read more

first_imgEnlarge ImageKevin Durant wearing Master & Dynamic headphones. www.instagram.com/leaguefits Kevin Durant may be sidelined with a calf injury as his Golden State Warriors face the Portland Trailblazers in the Western Conference Finals of the NBA playoffs, but he’s still making business moves. Thirty Five Ventures, the company Durant owns with sports business executive Rich Kleiman, has announced that it’s become an equity partner in New York-based Master & Dynamic, an audio company known for well-crafted headphones featuring premium materials and excellent sound.  “In addition to having part ownership in Master & Dynamic, the full partnership will also see Durant and Thirty Five Ventures work with the company on creative, design and building out the intersection of sports and music,” according to Master & Dynamic. Recently Master & Dynamic released its first noise-cancelling headphone, the MW65 ANC, and in June, the company says a special edition “Studio 35” version will hit stores in a color design that Durant selected. It’s unclear what those colors will be and whether they’ll offer any hints as to where Durant will play next year. He can opt-out of his contract at the end of the season and New York and Brooklyn are possible destinations — or so Knicks and Nets fans hope. Read: CNET’s full review of the Master & Dynamic MW65 ANCWe reached out to Durant for comment through Master & Dynamic and Thirty Five Ventures, but didn’t hear back from him. We were wondering what specifically drew him to the headphone brand. He’d been previously seen wearing Beats, which last year became the official headphone of the NBA. Unlike Beats, which are known for their strong bass, Master & Dynamic headphones feature a more balanced audio profile that’s more geared toward audiophiles. As part of the press release announcing the deal, Durant did have this to say about the partnership:”Master & Dynamic has been elevating the audio game since they launched in 2014 and I felt that they were a company I had to get involved with. Music is such a huge part of my life that their products have become an important part of my day to day, and I’m looking forward to some amazing collaboration between our teams.”For some reason Master & Dynamic didn’t have a professionally shot photo of Durant wearing the company’s headphones available for the announcement (the above photo is from Instagram). But the company did recently feature his mother, Wanda Durant, in a Mother’s Day blog post that’s worth reading.wanda-durant-1Enlarge ImageWanda Durant wearing the Master & Dynamic MW60.

Mayor Sylvester Turner expects to complete the purchase in the next 90 to 120 days.The Houston City Council approved spending millions to buy a property in the Third Ward with the goal of using the land to build a grocery store.The nine acre property is located at the corner of Texas Highway 288 and North MacGregor Way and it is owned by Houston Community College (HCC).The City of Houston will pay HCC more than 13.8 million dollars using federal funds.After that, the City will sublease the property to H-E-B, which will build a 72 thousand square foot supermarket.Lisa Johnson, who lives in the neighborhood, welcomes the project because “I’ll be able to get to the grocery store a lot easier, a lot faster.”Council Member Greg Travis opposed the deal during the Council session noting that the neighborhood where the land is located, although it is a low to moderate income part of town, is not considered a food desert.According to the federal government, a food desert is an area where at least 500 people or a third of the population live more than a mile away from the closest large grocery store.“When I see the fact that this is not actually a food desert, and we do have food deserts in this city, I’m wondering why we’re doing that in this area when there are true food deserts,” Travis told Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and members of the Council.Travis ultimately voted against the measure, along with Council Member Larry Green.Turner says he expects to complete the purchase in the next 90 to 120 days. 00:00 /01:08last_img read more

Regional official of WBSEDCL Nirmal Biswas said: “Initially we have decided to install the prepaid meters in government offices where electricity consumption is less than 5 kilowatt.
