801 child abuse cases recorded in 2018

first_imgWith 801 child abuse cases recorded last year and 392 in 2017, ChildLink, an activist group, has found in a study conducted last year that there has been a whopping increase in the number of children being abused.Presenting the findings of the study on Tuesday evening at the University of Guyana’s Turkeyen Campus, ChildLink researcher Samantha Alleyne told the audience that she was very disturbed by her findings and believes that she may even require counselling.“National statistics compiled by Child Care and Protection Agency confirmed that abuse of children, both physical and sexual, starts from as young as zero to three (years old). The data indicates that the sexual abuse of girl children remains high in the country. The number of reported cases is as follows; 801 in 2018, 392 in 2017 and 616 in 2016. Similarly, cases reported for boy children were 179 in 2018, 442 in 2017 and 118 in 2016,” Alleyne told the gathering.According to her, it was also found that children between the ages of 14 to 18 and eight to 13 years were more vulnerable to these attacks.She added that during her research, it was also found that some parents were reluctant to accept the abuse story their children had told them. In such a case, she said a parent even blamed her child for what happened, saying that the child wanted to separate her from her spouse.In this regard, it was noted that all victims at one point after their abuse, blamed themselves for what happened.While sharing a survivor story, the agency explained that some children are severely battered after being abused because many times some children are abused by numerous persons. In one instance, the researcher said that she came across a child who was abused by five different persons.During the study, three types of children were used to collect data. “Children who experience sexual abuse, children who experience physical abuse and children who experience sexual abuse and their cases were persecuted,” Alleyne explained.Interviews were held with the children who experienced sexual and physical abuse, while the parents of the children who were sexually abused were interviewed because they were younger and at risk of being traumatised again.The interviews were conducted over a four-week period with 17 individuals inclusive of nine children and eight adults.In December, the CCPA revealed that two children are abused every hour in Guyana.According to CCPA, by the end of October 2018, the Agency had already responded to 4352 child abuse reports, which happens to be the highest number of reported cases ever for the period.In fact, a 25.4 per cent increase was recorded when compared with figures for the same period last year.last_img read more

Wind Energy

– Advertisement -That would represent close to a four billion dollar investment and, would create three thousand jobs, placing BC among the countries leaders in wind energy generation.Canadian Wind Energy Association President, Robert Hornung says, “Our members have been anxiously awaiting this opportunity and are ready to respond”.The first BC wind energy generating facility is set to open in October, here in the Peace, about 40 kilometers southwest of Hudson’s Hope.The 180 megawatt Dokie Wind Project is expected to produce enough electricity, to power 53 thousand homes. BC Hydro has issued the largest clean power call, in this province’s history.It is asking power producers to submit proposals, which would annually add up, to 5 thousand gigawatt hours of clean or renewable energy.That’s enough electricity for 5 hundred thousand homes and, wind energy can produce the power through the installation, of 16 hundred megawatts of generating capacity.Advertisement read more

Dixon back for another Top Fuel run

first_imgOne of the things the team was working on in Arizona was setting up the car. The NHRA has made some modifications in regard to the position of the motor and fuel tank to improve the balance of the top fuel dragsters. Dixon said the change required a different setup than the team is used to. Larry Dixon will be back in the NHRA top fuel division with Don Prudhomme Racing. The only visible difference will be the familiar blue Miller Lite logos on his dragster will be replaced with orange, blue and white SkyTel letters. Most of his team from last year is still intact. There are four new crew members, but most everyone else is returning. They were able to make some test runs at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Ariz., a couple of weeks ago. “Everybody wants to be No. 1, but I certainly wouldn’t trade positions with him,” Dixon said. “I’d rather go in there and put it together.” Schumacher won his third straight NHRA top fuel championship last year. He did it in record fashion, but not the way he is accustomed to. “When we won a few years back, we had won 10 races and it had never been done before,” Schumacher said. “Well, that was a real unique way to do it. Then nine races the year after that. And then to do it, just to be a part of what we did last year, was fantastic.” Schumacher still is amazed how his team rallied at the end of the year. “But in reality, you know, it was unheard of,” Schumacher said. “And it was so exciting that I just can’t come up with a solution. I don’t think you can sit back and say here’s an exact perfect script that would be better than last year.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He has 38 career top fuel wins, but didn’t record a single one last year. Tony Schumacher rallied to erase one of the biggest deficits in NHRA history to win the top fuel championship last year. When Dixon was asked if his team had anything for Schumacher this year, he said, “If we don’t, somebody will.” “I think we had more to gain over the winter than he did,” said Dixon, a VanNuys High graduate. “I’m going to go in there and give it our best.” One thing is for sure: Dixon wouldn’t want to be in Schumacher’s place. last_img read more

Nurture of nature

first_imgWOODLAND HILLS – For Brenda Varvarigos, hardly a day goes by without a peep. As spring breeds new wildlife across Los Angeles, she and other urban wild-animal rescuers are up to their ears in the twittering of fallen nestlings. “I’m getting busy now, baby birds coming in every day,” said Varvarigos of Camarillo Wildlife Rehabilitation, hand-feeding five fledglings with upraised beaks in an incubator at her home. “It’s basically an underground railroad for urban wildlife. Everything gets released back into the wild.” Each year, a handful of wildlife rehabilitation centers care for thousands of newborn or injured animals scooped up by residents or animal control officers in backyards, roadways and local parks. And each year, man sends arrows through opossums, fires guns at birds of prey, cuts the tails off raccoons and snares ducks with fish hooks. For the most part, experts say, wildlife should simply be left alone. “We’re getting a few calls for Mama Duck and her ducklings by your swimming pool and we ask people to please leave them alone,” said Capt. Wendell Bowers of the East Valley Animal Shelter, wildlife coordinator for the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services. “In a couple weeks, they’ll be able to fly and Mama will take them someplace (else) where there’s water.” In the past year, Animal Services took in 3,649 wild animals, including a confused fawn found this week wandering inside the Hollywood Bowl. The menagerie contained nearly 1,100 birds, including 140 ducks, 50 hawks and 30 owls. Shelters also took in 538 red slider turtles, 495 opossums, 94 iguanas, 90 raccoons, 28 skunks, 15 boa constrictors, one African serval cat and one American alligator. Such wildlife was once euthanized. Today, the city sends its wild animals to one of several licensed rehabs. In the San Fernando Valley, chances are most wild shelter animals end up in the hands of Varvarigos, who last year took in 2,100 castoffs for Camarillo Wildlife facilities in Camarillo and Woodland Hills. “It’s OK, baby, there you go,” she said, consoling a great horned owl as she opened its massive beak before pushing a feeding tube into its stomach. The sick female bird, found by rangers at Griffith Park, is now being tested for West Nile virus. It was seven years ago that the former El Camino Real High School cheerleader was driving down the street and spotted a baby black crow struggling in a gutter. Now 33 and a mother of three young boys, the licensed rehabber rules a roost that recently numbered more than three dozen birds – many of which need feeding every two hours. She triages them. Treats them. Feeds them in cages. Fends off their talons. Finds them surgeries, if necessary. Arranges flying lessons in a 100-foot run. And releases each hawk or quail or raccoon back into nature. “She’s really a good resource for us,” Bowers said. “If she can’t handle (an animal), she knows who does.” Varvarigos once nursed nearly 30 ducks sickened by algae at Reseda Park and was the only known person to rehabilitate a raven suffering from West Nile virus. One baby barn owl, knocked out of a palm tree during trimming, broke its leg during the fall. Now recovering from surgery with a steel rod in its leg, it is slated to be released this summer. “Why do I do it? The love of animals,” said the blond-haired rescuer with a taste for turkey buzzards and rock ‘n’ roll. “When I can help one like this, release it in the wild, it makes everything I do worthwhile.” dana.bartholomew@dailynews.com (818) 713-3730 Call of the wild If you find a wild animal, do not water or feed it, experts say. Instead, leave it alone, or place birds back in their nests.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! But spring can be especially hazardous to wildlife as nestlings fall from trees and the city takes its toll on new families of ducks, squirrels and other urban critters. And that doesn’t include the record number of coastal birds and marine mammals now suffering from a bloom of toxic algae. “There’s a lot of springtime activity,” said Rebecca Dmytryk, founder of WildRescue in Malibu, whose rescues rose to six a day last week. “People aren’t educated on how to deal with it.” Tree trimmers knock down birds’ nests. House cats pounce. Windows knock birds cold. Rat poison kills vermin, which then poison the raptors that feast upon them. last_img read more

GOT HIM! DRIVER WHO ESCAPED PROSECUTION FOR DRINK-DRIVING IS FINALLY DONE…FOR DRINK-DRIVING!

first_imgJudge Paul Kelly: Said McKeown’s behaviour was a disgraceA drink-driver who escaped prosecution because of a legal loophole has been banned from driving – after losing a second legal challenge.Manorcunningham coalman Sean McKeown, 40, was cleared of drinking and driving in January after the DPP decided not to challenge a claim that a checkpoint set-up by Gardai was illegal. His solicitor claimed in that case the terms of the Mandatory Alcohol Test checkpoint was illegal because it gave Gardai below the rank of Inspector various choices as to where they could set up checkpoints.McKeown, of Abbey Park, Manorcunningham, was back in court yesterday arguing that his new arrest should also be dismissed because he was illegally handcuffed!But this time his legal challenge failed.Garda Paul McGee told Letterkenny District Court he followed McKeown at 2am on March 18 last year after he spotted a van being driven slowly through the village of Manorcunningham.The van was in the middle of the road and he had to swerve his patrol car to avoid it.McKeown then drove off at speed on the wrong side of the road and was finally detained after his van stalled.The 40 year old driver was abusive and aggressive towards officers, Judge Paul Kelly was told.McKeown told Gardai “Sure I am only leaving the pub with the woman and going in here. You have f*** all to be doing.”He was taken to Letterkeny Garda station and had given a breath sample with a reading three times the drink driving limit. But he refused to give a second reading.He had told Gda McGee: “You f****** w*****. You are getting paid too much. The Government were right to cut you.”“I gave you two breaths. That’s all you need. I done this before.”Judge Paul Kelly found McKeown guilty of failing to give a specimen of breath.The court was then told McKeown had a previous conviction for the same offence in 2005 and had been banned from driving for two years.Judge Kelly said McKeown’s behaviour was “disgraceful” adding: “Your comments to Gardai on duty were totally unwarranted.”He banned him from driving for four years but delayed the ban for six months to allow him to sell his coal delivery business.McKeown had walked free from court in January after admitting to Gardai he had drank nine pints of beer the night before being stopped at Manorcunningham on November 13th, 2011.However solicitor Kieran MacLochlainn argued the arrest was illegal. The DPP did not contest his challenge and the charge was withdrawn.GOT HIM!

School cafeteria to get makeover

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “The kitchen was too small and antiquated. It will be a nice upgrade and renovation when it’s done,” Wagner said. There also have been drainage and safety problems. The kitchen is so small that cafeteria staff, carrying hot trays and pans, must squeeze past each other in narrow walkways, Doyle said. The infrastructure improvements will cost about $505,000, and the modular building and its concrete-slab foundation, along with kitchen equipment, will cost $503,000. The project will be paid for with developer fees and money set aside by the district in a special account for cafeteria remodeling and modernization work. The work is expected to be completed by spring. In the meantime, lunches will brought into the school, and students will eat in the multipurpose room, Doyle said. The school itself was built in 1929, with the original cafeteria in the basement. The current cafeteria and kitchen were built in 1958. District officials have been discussing the kitchen situation since about 2001, Doyle said. The board at one point had considered installing just a “warming kitchen” to heat up food prepared elsewhere, but concluded a full-service kitchen would be better, Doyle said. “Ultimately, it benefits the students because we don’t have to go to prepackaged lunches that are brought in from an outside vendor, the quality of of which was not deemed acceptable by the school board,” Principal Randall Jolin said. “The board said we need to continue to provide high-quality food to the kids.” Karen Maeshiro, (661) 267-5744 karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LITTLEROCK – Work is scheduled to begin by the end of the year on the long-awaited $1 million expansion of Alpine School’s cafeteria and kitchen, nearly 50 years old. “It’s old, too small, and doesn’t meet the needs of the students anymore,” Keppel Union School District Assistant Superintendent Steve Doyle said. “When it was built, it was designed to serve 100 kids at a sitting. Now they are running three or four lunch (sessions) out of there.” The size of the building will be increased by about one-third at the 578-student school. The back half of the current building will be demolished, then rebuilt with the addition of a new modular building, 36 feet by 40 feet, containing the new kitchen, Superintendent Linda Wagner said. last_img read more

Men’s Basketball Cruises Past Simpson Sunday Afternoon

first_imgAfter trading buckets with the Storm to open the game, the Bulldogs reeled off 19 points in a row to take control for good. Roman Penn was key in the stretch as he scored 10 of his 13 points during Drake’s opening flurry. Jackson was also fouled on a 3-point attempt and converted two of his free throws to bring his total to 14 points in a stretch of four minutes and six seconds. Later in the half Yesufu cut backdoor for a high-flying alley-oop slam that brought the Knapp Center crowd to its feet. He finished 7-of-10 from the floor for a career-high 16 points. Lehigh 11/21/2019 – 7 p.m. Box Score (PDF) DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University men’s basketball team used a 19-0 run in the opening minutes to cruise to a 98-53 victory over Simpson College on Sunday afternoon at the Knapp Center. “We challenged them as a group that we need to be mature enough, veteran enough to come out at halftime and take that lead and extend it, so we do get an opportunity to play some more guys,” DeVries said. “It’s nice that you can reward them with the extra playing time and that makes it an enjoyable evening for everyone.” Sophomore Andrew Barrett saw his first action as a Bulldog. The Rock Island, Ill., native converted both of his field-goal attempts to score five points in his debut.

Murphy has reached double-digit points in seven-straight games dating back to last year.center_img Preview Buy Tickets Live Stats ESPN 1350 Mediacom MC22 “I thought he [Yesufu] gave us a great little spark defensively picking up the ball in full court,” said Drake head coach Darian DeVries. “I think that’s something we’re going to try to utilize more of as we move forward with him when he gets in the game.” Yesufu displayed his athleticism on two plays in particular in the second half. He hustled back after committing a turnover to chase down a layup by Simpson, emphatically pinning the attempt to the backboard. Full Schedule Roster Jonah Jackson provided an avalanche of his own minutes later, nailing four 3-pointers in a three-minute span to rattle off 12-straight points for Drake. Watch Live Joseph Yesufu was a menace defensively for Drake. Yesufu relentlessly applied full-court pressure, three times ripping a Storm ball-handler and taking it the other way for a layup. Yesufu’s career-best four steals enabled Drake to post a season-high with 15 steals as a team. The Bulldogs netted 29 points off of Simpson’s turnovers. After setting a personal best with 23 points against Kansas City, Liam Robbins contributed 12 points and seven rebounds for the Bulldogs. The 7-footer from Davenport stymied two shots as he helped the Bulldogs gain a 50-14 edge in points in the paint. The Bulldogs conclude their three-game homestand when they host Lehigh on Thursday, Nov. 21. Tipoff at the Knapp Center is slated for 7 p.m. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
