Woman perishes in Freeman Street fire

first_imgA 54-year-old woman perished when her Freeman Street, Georgetown house went up in flames on Thursday afternoon.Some neighbours believe that it was a stove that might have been left alight that started the fire, but some are also claiming that the incident was suspicious.The fire, which reportedly started sometime around 15:00h, claimed the life of Arlene Moses, a businesswoman, who, according to neighbours, lived alone.Guyana Times was made to understand that smoke was seen emanating from the one-storey wooden house, which was properly secured. The neighbours were unable to get into the burning house owing to the locks on the door. The doors were reportedly locked from inside.One of the woman’s neighbours found that strange, since the doors to the house would normally be open.According to the man, no one heard any screams or noise coming from the property which indicated to them that Moses was trapped inside. This publicationThe remnants of the house after the blaze was extinguishedwas also informed that the woman was having problems with relatives over the property.Moses’s charred remains were found after the blaze was put out by members of the Guyana Fire Service. Her remains were removed from the back of the house and taken to the Lyken Funeral Home.However, contrary to some neighbours’ accounts, it was reported that Moses lived with her nephew, Dillon Moore, who was reportedly at work at the time of the fire. He claimed that he became aware of the fire after a cousin informed him.As such, he quickly rushed to the house and was met with the almost completely gutted house. The young man was at the time still not aware that his aunt was in the burning building, and it was only after the blaze was doused that the shocking news was relayed to him by fire-fighters.It is still unclear what caused the fire.Moses was a shopkeeper who sold groceries. An investigation has since been launched into the incident.last_img read more

Soldier, longtime area resident, remembered

first_imgLA PUENTE – As a child, Douglas La Bouff liked to run around the neighborhood in Army camouflage, re-creating historic battles, pretending to launch attacks and rescue wounded soldiers. “He participated in some of the country’s greatest military campaigns, right here in the neighborhood of La Puente,” said Army Capt. Robert Medina, a close friend of La Bouff’s. More than 250 relatives, friends and military personnel gathered at St. Joseph Catholic Church in La Puente on Saturday to pay respects to La Bouff, a 36-year-old Army major killed Jan. 7 in a helicopter crash in northern Iraq. In what officials said was the deadliest crash in almost a year, La Bouff and seven other soldiers, along with four American civilians, were aboard a Black Hawk helicopter flying between bases when communications were lost with the aircraft. The cause of the crash remains under investigation. La Bouff is survived by his wife, Karen, and their 7-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son. He received a full military burial with a gun-salute Saturday. Members of the Patriot Guard escorted mourners to the cemetery. La Bouff had strong ties to the community. Born in Baldwin Park, he attended St. Joseph Catholic School and received all his sacraments at the church. He graduated from Bishop Amat High School, coached football at La Puente High School and lived just a few doors from La Puente Councilman Louis Perez. La Bouff was against drinking alcohol, and in high school started Friend to Friend, an anti-drug, anti-alcohol program, for which he received a Congressional Gold Medal. Former California Rep. Esteban Torres, who said he has known the family for years, recalled that La Bouff charmed the politicians in Washington, D.C., when he went to receive his medal. “The senators took to him,” Torres said. La Bouff was a history buff, majoring in the subject in college and graduate school. He dreamed of getting his doctorate and teaching history at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. La Bouff served two tours in Korea and in March, he volunteered to serve in the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Carson, and was deployed to fight in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was a top intelligence officer. Jim La Bouff remembered his younger brother, who was named for Gen. Douglas MacArthur, as a “happy kid” who wanted to join the military from a very young age. Douglas was passionate about military history and liked to talk about progress being made in Iraq. “He knew the risks, but he was willing to assume them in service of his country,” he said. shirley.hsu@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

What Is It About Space Aliens that Makes Evolutionists Go Nuts?

first_img(Visited 545 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Week after week, month after month, year after year, evolutionists speculate about imaginary friends they have never seen.Perhaps our headline appears uncharitable to eminent scientists and reporters. Our response is to just show you what they are saying and let you decide.SETI, METI, and Betty’s SpaghettiAliens Are Real, But Humans Will Probably Kill Them All, New Paper Says (Live Science). Brandon Specktor presents a new answer to the Fermi Paradox from a Russian imagineer named Alexander Berezin. He warns us that we’re not going to like it.“What if,” Berezin wrote in a new paper posted March 27 to the preprint journal arxiv.org,”the first life that reaches interstellar travel capability necessarily eradicates all competition to fuel its own expansion?”In other words, could humanity’s quest to discover intelligent life be directly responsible for obliterating that life outright? What if we are, unwittingly, the universe’s bad guys?“What if, what if.” You have to admit the story is a clever way to dodge the lack of evidence for space aliens. Don’t ask him if eradicating competition is “evil,” because Darwinism has no such categories.Decoding Alien Messages Could Be the Biggest Citizen-Science Project Ever (Space.com). Mike Wall wants to spread the folly. Let’s get everybody to join a fact-free project, decoding an alien message. Just don’t tell them to use intelligent design to do it. Mike is even prepared if no ET calls in. We’ll turn it around with METI (Messaging Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence). We’ll call up the imaginary friends for an exciting one-way conversation!Can any civilization make it through climate change? (Science Daily). This article gives Adam Frank good press for publishing in Astrobiology the notion that other civilizations he has never seen may be going extinct because of climate change. Hidden message to fellow humans, perhaps? Live Science echoed this meme with its ominous theme, “Climate Change Killed the Aliens and It Will Probably Kill Us Too, New Simulation Suggests.”We discovered that life may be billions of times more common in the multiverse (The Conversation). We “discovered” that? Who’s “we,” Paleface? (see Tontology in the Darwin Dictionary). The rest of us would like to see your evidence for a multiverse. Perhaps a peek into Betty’s kitchen to see what’s cooking.Bio-AstrologyShifting a few letters provides a more accurate name than Astrobiology. Since no space aliens have called in yet, NASA would be happy to find some itsy germs that they imagine could evolve into ET’s.NASA dives deep into the search for life (Phys.org). And here they go, diving to see earth-bound organisms at deep sea vents. The fumes create a bio-astrology high among astrobiologists, conjuring up visions of organisms at Enceladus in their collective imaginations.Habitability of the young Earth could boost the chances of life elsewhere (Astrobiology Magazine). Joelle Renstrom gets all the blessing of NASA to speculate that an early earth she never saw might have been milder than thought, and then conclude that other planets might be mild, too.The Moons of Some Giant Alien Planets Could Host Life (Space.com). Chelsea Gohd illustrates that way to get ahead in science. Write some fact-free fluff about life on moons and you can get published. Note to Chelsea: there’s no life on our own moon, which is in the habitable zone.Mars rocks may harbor signs of life from 4 billion years ago (Science Daily). NASA sees some iron-rich rocks on Mars. Conclusion: there could have been life there. By analogy, a reader might presume, there could have been steel buildings there, too, and if steel, maybe Martians built swords and played Game of Thrones.These speculations are so very far from the ideals of science set in the 17th century by Newton, Galileo, Boyle, and the other founders of modern science. They frowned on speculation and demanded empirical proof. They followed the evidence. There is NO evidence for space aliens or for space microbes, either. All the media hype is part of a scheme to make scientific materialism sound exciting. Well, it isn’t. Listen to one scientific materialist admit it in this new Illustra Media short film, “God and the Astronomer.” True confessions by the founding director of the NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center, after a long life as a materialist. Shocking. Are you listening, NASA?last_img read more

90 small tourism businesses is the focus at Indaba

first_imgFast-tracking the growth of almost 100 small businesses in South Africa is one of the initiatives at the upcoming Indaba, Africa’s top travel show. It will be held in May at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban.The media launch of this year’s Indaba is held on Tuesday 28 March 2017.

The event is hosted in Durban. (Image: South African Tourism)Brand South Africa reporterThe Indaba 2017 will host 90 small tourism businesses at the show, organisers revealed at the media launch of the conference on Tuesday 28 March 2017.Indaba is one of the largest tourism marketing events on the African calendar and one of the top three ‘must visit’ events of its kind on the global calendar, reads the site.“It showcases the widest variety of Southern Africa’s best tourism products and attracts international buyers and media from across the world. Indaba is owned by South African Tourism.”The event, also known as Africa’s top travel show, takes place from 16 to 18 May 2017 at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban.Small businesses to get exposureSisa Ntshona, chief executive officer of the South African Tourism, said at the media briefing at the Killarney Country Club in Johannesburg that this year’s Indaba would have a special focus on accelerating small businesses in the tourism sector.One of the key focuses is an initiative to train and mentor small and medium-sized enterprises, and give it with preferential access to influential industry players.“For me, one of Indaba’s highlights is our new Hidden Gems programme, which will help boost tourism by enabling smaller players. [The 90 small businesses are] emerging and existing enterprises are at least 50% black-owned,” said Ntshona.“They are drawn from each of South Africa’s nine provinces and we call them our Hidden Gems, because they are tucked-away treasures that only a select few know about.”South African Tourism, in partnership with the National Department of Tourism and the Southern African Tourism Services Association will allow the entrepreneurs to get exposure at Indaba as well as the opportunity to “pitch” their offerings to travel buyers during speed marketing sessions.Here are some of the messages that was put to Twitter during the media briefing:“Tourism has evolved.

He adds that the continent as a whole reported an 8% surge in international arrivals in 2016, with Sub-Saharan Africa increasing by 11% and South Africa by a massive 13%. “Last year, we broke records to reach 10-million international tourists coming to South Africa.” (Image: Brand South Africa)Ntshona urged all businesses and individuals interested in tourism to book their place at Indaba 2017, adding: “It’s going to be a lively, buzzing, bustling trade show that will showcase Africa in all its rich and diverse glory.”List of more than 50 things to do in DurbanWith less than 50 days left to the event, the Indaba’s Twitter handle @SATravelTrade also revealed a list of 51 things to do in Durban.

Will Dean Foods’ Dairy announcement affect the beef cattle industry?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A few weeks ago, Dean Foods announced they were discontinuing milk contracts with 100 or so dairies which included a dozen or so operations in Tennessee. Essentially, the dairies impacted have until the end of May to find a new outlet for their milk or they will be forced to exit the industry due to having no method to market milk. This has brought several questions across my email and through personal communication.From the beef sector side, this could have an implication on beef markets if all of these dairy operations are forced to sell out. One would imagine these dairy operations would be able to market heifers and some of the young fresh cows. However, there would likely also be a short-term glut of slaughter cows in the region.From another standpoint, some of these dairies might consider beef cattle production as an alternative. The resources these dairies have could lend itself to backgrounding feeder cattle or a confined beef cattle operation.last_img read more
