Lewis sparkles in tied contest

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Dashing left-hander Evin Lewis stroked an entertaining unbeaten half-century to set up an interesting finish, but rain proved the spoiler, forcing a tie under Duckworth/Lewis in the day/night one-day game between the WICB President’s XI and South Africa on Sunday night. Man of the Match Hashim Amla stroked 92 to propel the tourists up to 280 for nine, after they won the toss and opted to bat first at Queen’s Park Oval. But opener Lewis answered with an authoritative 71 off 61 deliveries and the President’s XI were 127 for three at the start of the 25th over when the rains arrived to end the contest prematurely, with both teams level on Duckworth/Lewis. The game is the only warm-up one for the Proteas before the start of the Tri-Nations Series in Guyana on Friday, and several players grabbed the opportunity to spend time in the middle. Kyle Abbott chimed in with 43 from 38 balls, Farhaan Behardien scored 36, Aaron Phangiso hit 34 not out, while Chris Morris got 31. Opener Rilee Roussouw (0) and captain JP Duminy (6) were not among these as both fell cheaply to leave South Africa on 20 for two in the sixth over. The right-handed Amla revived the innings in a 106-run, third-wicket stand with Behardien, striking 10 fours and a six in an 83-ball knock. He was eventually lbw to leg-spinner Damion Jacobs in the 29th over, during a period when South Africa lost three wickets for 25 runs to slip to 151 for five in the 31st over. Morris then added 47 for the sixth wicket with Trinidadian Stephen Katwaroo (21), who turned out for the Proteas before Abbott and Phangiso put on 69 for the eighth wicket. In reply, the President’s XI lost captain Kraigg Brathwaite (9) and Test teammate Jermaine Blackwood (7) cheaply, before Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer combined in an exciting 90-run partnership for the third wicket. Lewis hammered six fours and four sixes while Hetmyer, the successful Under-19 West Indies captain, stroked 29 from 45 balls with four fours. With the rain on the way, Hetmyer was bowled by leg-spinner Imran Tahir in the 24th over. The Tri-Nations Series, which also involves Australia, runs from June 3-26 in Guyana, St Kitts and Barbados.last_img read more

Criminal Lawyer Jason Doe Solves The Case of the Murdered Lawmaker

first_imgIt was one of the unusual homicide cases in Monrovia in recent times. Criminal lawyer Jason Doe was defending Samson Sombai, accused of murdering a female lawmaker. It became apparent that the District Attorney was determined to pull all the strings to bind the defendant over for a jury trial a situation that his defense lawyer, Jason Doe was determined to prevent.Although Jason Doe enjoyed such a trial, where he would stand before twelve common citizens to give his client his day in court, where he would use his ingenuity in cross-examining witnesses who would claim his client was guilty as charged. But in this particular case he realized the prosecution did not have enough proof beyond all reasonable doubt and was prepared to explore that angle. The discovery of the lawmaker’s remains generated much public interest and exerted enormous pressure that could undermine the execution of justice in the case.Lawmaker Estella Yongor’s death raised questions about her associates. There were reports that she might have been killed after she had received a gold wrist watch, missing after her body was discovered, which provided the added twist as Monrovians followed the case with passion.Metropolitan newspapers in the city made wide guesses and in a sensational angle, one of the most respected newspapers carried an editorial with a touch of irony in the lighter side of life:It would be the discovery of her missing gold watch that could help prosecutors a chance to give her death some justice. The demise of the woman known among her colleagues as the ‘law-lady’ has once again brought it painful home that there is always a day of reckoning.Estella Yongor’s end did not come because she had served her people well; it came because of certain decisions, ambitious as they might have been, were not appreciated by the very people she had been hobnobbing for many years. Sadly, the woman known in frequenting where even Angels would not dare, has provided Monrovians much to talk about. An argument at a local club leading to her death is more intriguing than the bitterness of her death. Estella Yongor, the controversial lawmaker’s life was full of mystery and contradiction. Consider the following, as reported during the week of her death: “I saw the lawmaker that night,” said Monrovia Scratch Card Seller, Sam Toe, “she had on a gold watch and was a beauty that much I can tell you.” “A real beauty?” our reporter heard the question from an inquisitor, a young man who also admitted he admired the lawmaker.  Toe smiled, and said, “Yes, but there was this guy with her, and he was not that dashing in his outlook but there was something like a character in his looks. “Then after say twenty minutes, another man, he was a chubby type of guy and about twenty seven years old. His face was filled with rage.  “It was hard to know what was responsible but he demanded for a gold wrist watch which started an argument that ended up in a melee.”Our investigations revealed that the lawmaker had had some inner-circle friends and one of them could have sparked the fuse that led to her untimely death at thirty five. But the question is: Where is her gold wrist watch? The discovery could lead to the eventual resolution of this horrible crime.   The unrestrained but incriminating reports on the case in the media demonstrated people’s anger, and therefore many applauded when Judge Samson Saywah issued a gag order, preventing further reporting till the preliminary trial was over.  When her body was found, parts were missing, prosecuting witness, homicide investigative officer Detective Robert Monger testified during the pre-trial. It was a case of intrigue and a chance to salvage the only image left for the former lawmaker. In court, the blistering atmosphere indicated the tragedy of the day, and the prosecutor was out for the kill as the case opened.  “What else?” Prosecutor Santos Weah said, directing attention at detective Monger.  “William Sombai, the defendant was caught with a briefcase that belonged to the decedent.”  “When and where did you find William Sombai?”  “It was two days after the murder and a witness at the club mentioned that he came along with the decedent.  “We found him at his house in Duala drunk. Evidently he was under the influence of narcotics and a test indicated it was marijuana.”  “What did you do next?”  “We took him into custody and invited assistance from the JFK Medical Center. After some help, it took him two more days before he was sober.”  “Ok,” the prosecutor said, “what did you do next?”  “Well, when he sobered enough, he was able to explain his involvement and particularly how he got the briefcase belonging to the decedent.”  “How did he get the briefcase?”  “He said he found it behind the club, the Mayors Club, where the decedent and her friends had been the night of her murder.”  “Did he reveal what happened to the lawmaker?”  “Well,” the officer said, “initially he was not sure what was at stake till we informed him about the death of the lawmaker.”  “What was his reaction?”  “He broke down and wept but explained that he was not involved.”  “He was not involved in what?”  “In the lawmaker’s murder.”  “And what else happened to him?”  “He admitted that he was not himself that night and therefore he could not explain any circumstances that might have led to his involvement, if there was any at all, in the murder.”  The prosecutor hesitated, and then said, “Did the defendant admit any knowledge of any of the persons that were with the lawmaker?” “Well, he admitted being there himself, I mean William Sombai…” but he was interrupted by the prosecutor, “When you said William Sombai, are you referring to William Sombai who is the defendant and is in this Courtroom?” “Yes,” the officer said, “and as I was saying defendant Sombai explained during our investigations that he had long known the decedent would end up that way.”  “’What way did he mean?”  “I think…”  “Don’t think,” the prosecutor responded, “just answer the question as best as you know it from the defendant.” “In that case,” he answered, “he meant the way the lawmaker died.”  The Courtroom remained quiet, as spectators focused their attention on the detective.  On the defense’s side, the defendant sat somberly beside criminal lawyer Jason Doe, who watched the witness with a slight frown on his face.  “Detective Monger,” the prosecutor pressed on, “you searched the defendant’s room?”  “Yes.” “What did you find?”  “A wrist watch, a gold wrist watch with the owner’s initial on it.”  “Whose initials were they?”  “The initials of the decedent.”  “Do you have it with you?”   “Yes.”   The detective shuffled his pocket and withdrew a gold wrist watch with the initials E. Y. on it.  “What initials do you see on the wrist watch, Detective Monger?”  “They are the letters E Y.”  “Indicating Estella Yongor?”  “Yes.”  “What was the defendant’s response as to how he came to possess the gold wrist watch?”   “Initially he was unable to explain how he came by the wrist watch till he realized the difficult position when his…”   The prosecutor said, “Did his lawyer intervene?”   “Yes and the defendant further explained that the decedent had presented the watch to him as a gift.”  “What happened next?”   “When he was told that the owner of the wrist watch had been murdered, he said he would be blamed for her death.”  “What did he do?” “For the next seven days, he could not stop weeping.”  “What did he say, during this course?”  “He would say ‘I know they would blame me, but I did not do it,’ which was very much shocking.”  “And he admitted without being put under pressure that he was with the decedent but could not explain specifically his role during the period that the lawmaker reportedly died?”  “Yes.”  The prosecutor smiled, and turning to Counselor Doe, said, “Your witness.”  Jason Doe strolled leisurely towards the witness and staring Detective Monger in the face, said: “You saw the gold wrist watch with the defendant?”  “Yes.”  “And initials there indicated EY, which you testified to represent Estella Yongor?”   “Yes.”   “But you will agree that the letters, EY can represent many other names other than Estella Yongor?”   “Yes.”   “It could be Eternal Youth, or Esther Young?”   “Yes.”  The lawyer saw a slightly confused look in the witness’ face, and said, “You examined the briefcase found by the defendant?”  “Yes and we found out several personal effects of the decedent in it.”  “Was there anything to suggest that someone had tampered with the briefcase?”  “Yes.”  “And the lawmaker, with all due respect to her memory, was known to have certain relations with certain characters in her community?”  “Yes,” he said, “but evidently she was having a good time.”  “During your investigations, Detective Monger the defendant was cooperative?”  The witness nodded and said quietly, “Of course.”  A flickering light overshadowed the room, as the lawyer paced back and forth, hammering out questions with a professional torch. The spectators waited patiently, expecting the lawyer to spring one of his unusual questions to get the witness to create doubts with his answers. And the lawyer did not disappoint them when he charged:  “The decedent was involved in many projects and there was one, Detective Monger that indicated that she, on a number of occasions, argued with a man who had threatened her?”  “Police found out that that threat was not anything serious,” the witness answered, his dark and piercing eyes staring into the lawyer’s gaze.  “Who made the threat against the lawmaker?” Searching through his memories, the detective said, “It was one Samuel Boimah.”  “What did he do?”  “He made some attempts to blackmail the lawmaker.”  “Let me refer you to the briefcase which the police collected from the defendant,” Jason Doe said, “among the fingerprints was that of Samuel Boimah.”  “Yes.”  “Mr. Boimah was indebted to the lawmaker in the amount of U$5,000?”  “That’s correct.”  “And since Samuel Boimah was unable or did not want to repay the debt, did it not stand to reason that the pressure from the lawmaker compelled Boimah to engineer the lawmaker’s demise to free himself from the debt burden?”  “Well,” the witness’s smooth composure was broken by a faint surprise as he fumbled with his response, “We…considered that angle.” Nodding slowly, the lawyer said: “And what was your answer from that angle?” The lawyer’s question seemed to freeze the witness from inaction.  The embarrassing situation was saved when, Judge Saywah said, “The Court finds this case very interesting and stipulates with the benefit of the defendant that there is Samuel Boimah’s angle that the police must urgently investigate and therefore the Court hereby adjourns the case till and will resume tomorrow morning at 10a.m.”  However, early the next morning, Jason Doe and his client, along with several well-wishers, sat at the lawyer’s Benson Street office in Monrovia. The morning echoes of laughter by passersby whirled around as well as those of taxis and buses that plied the Somalia Drive and Bushrod Island communities. The lawyer’s secretary Janet Lovebird held several dailies newspapers. She entered the office, with glittering eyes and strolled to the lawyer, handing him one of the daily newspapers. The lawyer grinned and stared at the front page of the paper, with the bold banner headline: ‘Sam Boimah Admits Killing Lawmaker.’  The lawyer smiled and placing his right hand on his client’s shoulder, said, “In the end the police was forced to do a thorough work that should have been done in the first place.”   Samson Sombai responded with a smile.  “Now the police have done it,” the lawyer told him, “and you are free.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Food, water, power needed

first_img Baenen said the city has been making strides in public education through training sessions titled “Are You Ready?” that show residents how to create a family communications plan, use fire extinguishers and create emergency supply kits. The public training sessions fit in with new training programs for city staff members who are now taking a federally mandated “National Incident Management System,” an online training course for emergency preparedness. Officials say they are taking inventory of their food, water and equipment and have enough for municipal emergency crews and staff. Golonski said it’s up to residents to have emergency supply kits on hand if a disaster hits. Golonski said the city needs more mobile power generators to be stored at city shelters. He said the city only has one mobile generator on a trailer. He also suggested taking a poll of residents to see just how well-prepared they are. “We should step up efforts to help citizens get ready so they can be better prepared,” he said.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BURBANK – Better public education, more back-up generators, and an emergency stock of food and water are needed so Burbank can be better prepared for a natural disaster or a terrorist attack, officials said Wednesday. Fire officials outlined these shortcomings earlier this week, a month after City Councilman David Golonski inquired about the city’s disaster plans, raised in the wake of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Authorities said a disaster would initially overwhelm resources in the city – and, possibly, throughout Southern California – so officials pressed the issue of how to better prepare the public for a disaster. “We’re really doing well,” said Rich Baenen, the Fire Department’s disaster preparedness coordinator. “But there’s still room for improvement.” last_img read more

Varadkar and Johnson expected to speak ahead of G7 summit

first_imgTaoiseach Leo Varadkar and British prime minister Boris Johnson are expected to speak again by phone next week, before Mr Johnson attends the G7 summit of world leaders.Sources confirmed the phone call is likely to take place as part of a fresh round of appeals by Mr Johnson to EU leaders and before he travels to the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, next weekend.Mr Varadkar and Mr Johnson have to date held one phone call a fortnight after the new British prime minister gained power, and are due to hold a face-to-face meeting in early September. However, next week’s phone call is likely to prove vital to setting the tone for future engagements in the lead up to the October 31 Brexit deadline, with it still being unclear if the two leaders will meet in September in Dublin or London.The phone call is expected to see Mr Johnson again push for the backstop to be scrapped, and for Mr Varadkar to underline the importance of protecting the Good Friday agreement.Downing Street has separately indicated Mr Johnson will use the coming days to speak with a number of other EU leaders, including key figures French president Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Biarritz next week.The fresh diplomatic efforts come as opposition parties in Britain continue to push for an alternative government to block a no-deal Brexit, and as leaked German government papers stressed Berlin will oppose any backing down on the existing withdrawal agreement if it damages the Irish backstop.

@Mentions Are Now Live on Facebook

first_imgFacebook announced that it would soon support Twitter-like @mentions a few days ago. Today, Facebook actually enabled this functionality. Now, when you type a status update and type ‘@,’ an auto-updating drop-down menu with the names of your Facebook friends will appear. While users could always write the name of their friends in a status update, these names are now linked to a user’s profile. Soon, Facebook will also allow users to tag friends in applications as well. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos frederic lardinois Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts Tags:#Facebook#news#web Whenever somebody tags you in a status update, a notification will appear. For now, however, there is no place where you can easily find all the updates where somebody tagged you. It is also worth noting that while Twitter actually displays the @ symbol in status updates, Facebook just replaces it with the full name of the tagged person. Obviously, this now makes Facebook even more like Twitter than ever before. At the same time, though, this is also a very useful feature, as it allows your friends to easily head over to the profile of the friends you tagged in your updates. Facebook’s Twitter-like new Facebook Lite interface, however, doesn’t support @mentions, yet.Tip of the hat to Zee at The Next Web for being the first to notice that this feature was live.
