The couple who live in the house were not at home at the time of the blaze.The Richmond Housing Scheme house on fireReports are neighbours saw flames coming from the house and called the Fire Service, which is located at Anna Regina. A resident told Guyana Times that when the call was placed to the fire service, they were told that there was no driver available to take the fire tender to the location. It took the fire service 30 minutes to arrive at the scene which is one village away. However, this newspaper was told by that time the house was completely destroyed.Residents in an effort to render assistance formed a bucket brigade to save the house that was in close proximity to the blaze.When this publication visited the scene, residents were very critical of the Guyana Fire Service’s response. One neighbour told this publication that the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) personnel arrived on the scene in quick time and disconnected the electricity.This publication was unable to speak with the couple who lived in the home, but neighbours said that the house was completely furnished.The Guyana Fire Service has since launched an investigation.

Hamid Hayat’s sentencing has been postponed while Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. considers a defense motion seeking a new trial. The judge delayed making a decision. Under questioning by the judge, Cote denied allegations contained in a sworn statement by another juror that he made a gesture similar to tightening a noose or uttered “hang him” while jurors were considering evidence. “No, your honor, never,” Cote told the judge. He also defended statements he made after the trial to Atlantic Monthly. Cote told the magazine that “new rules of engagement” were justified after the Sept. 11 attacks and the 2005 London subway bombings. Defense lawyers seized on those statements as evidence that Cote was predisposed to convict anyone accused of terrorism. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Tice-Raskin acknowledged the foreman acted improperly when he telephoned an alternate juror during deliberations. But he said none of Cote’s actions were damaging enough to merit a new trial. SACRAMENTO – Shaky testimony and prejudice by the jury foreman should be enough to grant a new trial to a Lodi man convicted last year of terrorism-related charges, a defense lawyer argued Friday. Attorney Dennis Riordan told a federal judge that jury foreman Joseph Cote was biased against his client because he is Pakistani-American, a Muslim and was charged with terrorist activities. “We really have a question if we had 12 fair jurors,” Riordan said during a hearing in U.S. District Court. “We know that one of them was not fair.” Hayat, 24, was arrested in June 2005 and convicted last April of lying to federal agents when he denied attending a terrorist training camp in Pakistan in 2003. He also was convicted of providing support to terrorists by attending the camp, then returning to the U.S. intending to conduct a holy war. He faces up to 39 years in prison.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

UBS energy economist Jan Stuart said the reaction on oil markets was “measured” given the prominence of the Abqaiq facility and the ability of the attackers to get so close to it. Aside from its total output, Saudi Arabia is a vital supplier to the global market because it is the only country with significant spare production capacity. If necessary, Saudi Arabia says it could quickly boost production by 1.5 million barrels a day. By contrast, there is no other country that can add meaningful output to offset an unexpected disruption. The emergency supply of last resort would be the 4 billion barrels of stocks that the International Energy Agency lays claim to. Nymex gasoline advanced by 3.72 cents to finish at $1.5506 a gallon, while heating oil gained 6.41 cents to close at $1.7267 a gallon. Natural gas futures were even at $7.45 per 1,000 cubic feet. Oil prices had already started the day higher as persistent concerns over Nigerian supply disruptions and Iran’s nuclear program overshadowed U.S. government data showing gains in domestic crude supplies. Oil prices spiked earlier in the week on news that Nigerian militants had attacked a pipeline switching station operated by Royal Dutch Shell PLC and a boat they claimed housed Nigerian military personnel. That, and an earlier attack, has forced Shell to halt the flow of about 455,000 barrels a day. Nigeria is Africa’s leading oil exporter and the United States’ fifth-largest supplier, usually exporting 2.5 million barrels daily. Traders also remain concerned over the situation in Iran, which has offered the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog, information on a secret project that U.S. intelligence has linked to a possible nuclear arms program, two diplomats said Thursday. Iran is the second-largest oil producer in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, and analysts worry that sanctions or any other actions the West might take against Tehran could disrupt the flow of oil there. On May 1, 2004, attackers stormed the offices of a Houston-based oil company in the western Saudi oil hub of Yanbu, killing six Westerners and a Saudi before security forces killed the attackers. Several weeks later, al-Qaida-linked gunmen stormed oil company compounds in Khobar, on the eastern coast, and took hostages. Twenty-two people, 19 of them foreigners, were killed before the siege ended. Associated Press Writer Hasan Jamali in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia, contributed to this report. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – Crude oil futures jumped 4 percent Friday after a thwarted attack on a massive oil facility in Saudi Arabia rattled a market already jittery about supply disruptions in Nigeria and Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest oil producer, with output of about 9.5 million barrels per day, or 11 percent of global consumption. The target of the attack, the Abqaiq oil complex in eastern Saudi Arabia, processes about two-thirds of the country’s oil before it is exported. Suicide bombers in explosives-packed cars attacked the heavily guarded facility but were foiled when guards opened fire, detonating the vehicles and killing the attackers, Interior Ministry spokesman Lt. Gen. Mansour al-Turki told The Associated Press. The vehicles exploded outside the first of three fences around the sprawling complex, al-Turki said. Saudi oil minister Ali Naimi said the attack caused “a small fire” that was brought under control and that operations were not affected. But the incident heightened supply fears on world oil markets.

Brent crude futures for April delivery jumped $2.06 to $62.60 on London’s ICE Futures exchange. While terror attacks are not new to Saudi Arabia – there were two highly publicized attacks against oil company offices and employee compounds in the spring of 2004 – analysts said Friday’s action was noteworthy because of how close the perpetrators came to a facility integral to the flow of oil. “It’s new in the sense that this is the boldest attempt to strike at the heart of a Saudi oil-production complex,” Eurasia Group oil analyst Antoine Halff said. “So far they had been confined to office buildings and housing units.” “At the same time, what this attack demonstrates is not just how much the Saudi oil machine is a target for attacks, but also how prepared the Saudi oil company and military are, and how effective they are at thwarting attempts to disrupt oil production and exports,” Halff added. “There are two sides to this.” A Saudi journalist who arrived at the scene soon after an explosion said guards exchanged fire for two hours with two militants outside the facility. He also told The Associated Press that he saw workers repairing a pipeline. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
ONTARIO – On a cool October night, Ontario brought the heat Friday in a well-played, hard fought 31-21 victory over Don Lugo at Chaffey High School. While recording eight sacks of Don Lugo’s quarterbacks, the Jaguars (4-3, 1-1 in Mt. Baldy League) were able to disrupt offensive timing and create key special teams miscues in the hotly contested game. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “Our offensive line did the job tonight,” Ontario coach Nick Baiz said. “We overcame the fumbles in the first half for a big win over a good team, who has beaten us the past two years.” The Jaguar defensive line tortured Don Lugo for eight sacks and two botched punt attempts, creating relentless pressure without blitzing. That pressure allowed for more defenders in the secondary, resulting in two Russell Carr interceptions. Carr, in for injured starter Andrew Hernandez, was able to connect on some big plays, including a 66-yard bomb to wideout Chris Young. Ultimately, however, Ontario’s front four was too much to handle, led by defensive end Julian Flores’ four sacks. Don Lugo (4-3, 1-1) charged out of the gate on the opening kickoff, with Andre Pickens going 90 yards for a score. Momentum kept residence on the Conquistadores’ sideline when Ontario fumbled the ensuing kickoff, but Don Lugo managed only one yard on that possession, failing to capitalize on the turnover in Jaguar territory. Ontario responded by churning out a 62-yard, 11-play scoring drive, capped by John Koloa’s 12-yard run. The running game was effective all night, punishing Don Lugo’s defense for 234 yards. After recovering a blocked punt in the end zone for a touchdown, Ontario later forced a bad snap, leading to a big advantage in field position. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness believes Dublin should come through the replay against Mayo on Saturday night, but says it will be another bruising exchange. The All-Ireland semi-final wasn’t the greatest of spectacles in footballing terms, but both sides literally put their bodies on the line and Mayo’s comeback made it one of the most exciting games in recent years.McGuinness said it was real championship football with a hard edge and that the commitment from both sides was commendable. McGuinness found the contest intriguing but believes Mayo missed a trick by not employing Barry Moran on the edge of the square.In his weekly column with The Irish Times McGuinness offered his analysis on the match and how things may pan out in the replay on Saturday.McGuinness said, “It was championship football with a true hard edge.It may not have been a flawless game but there were some excellent passages of play and, as an occasion, it contained everything you could hope for from sport.“It was just exhilarating and the commitment from both teams was commendable. “I felt that, overall, Dublin’s game plan was superior to Mayo’s and that this was reflected on the scoreboard after an hour.“They are at a deeper level of understanding of what they want to do and of how to execute it. I thought tactically they got so much right. Their kick-out strategy was very strong – apart from the one they lost at the end of the match, which was critical.McGuiness felt Dublin lacked discipline and this was evidenced by the fact Cillian O’Connor scored 1-09 from placed balls.“The one area that I felt they were lacking was in discipline – 1-9 for O’Connor from a penalty and frees tells its own story.“I thought Dublin were excellent in transition and, as the game developed, they pushed the game out to a lead by seven. Ciaran Kilkenny was excellent in the first half and they produced scores more easily than Mayo. “They got a lot of joy from kicking long, diagonal ball into the right-hand corners. The training field was written all over their performance.McGuinness has a hunch Dublin will get over the line but wouldn’t be surprised if Mayo yet again turn logic on its head.“My hunch is that Dublin will come through but only if they face down what will be a significant Mayo challenge.“Logic suggests that Dublin have the football ability to do that. But Mayo are masters at turning logic on its head. “So who will blink first?MCGUINNESS – “MAYO ARE THE MASTERS OF TURNING LOGIC ON ITS HEAD” was last modified: September 1st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Home-page Sportnews
