Mother denies poisoning 2 children

first_img…jury hears about ‘poison’ tabletsTwenty-five-year-old Awena Rutherford appeared before Justice Navindra Singh and a 12-member jury at the High Court on Monday to answer charges that she killed her two children by poison on March 27, 2014 at Branch Road, Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara (ECD).Represented by Attorney Adrian Thompson, the accused woman denied two counts of manslaughter as presented by State Prosecutor Tiffini Lyken, who in heropening address told the jury that one-year-oldAccused: Awena RutherfordJabari Cadogan and four-year-old Odasia Cadogan died from pesticide poisoning. The cause of death was uncovered during the post-mortem examination.The defendant’s sister, Monica Sealey, testified that her niece and nephew vomited after Rutherford gave them tablets to drink, claiming that they had a cold, but according to Sealey, the children did not have a cold. Sealey recalled that the four-year-old hesitated to drink the tablet.Sealey told the court that her sister and two children lived with her family, which included her husband, Curt Sealey and the two children she had at the time. The jury heard that on the fateful day, Rutherford, after taking a bath, called Jabari and Odasia to drink the tablets. The children’s aunt recalled that the one-year-old drank his first and was playing and her sister told her niece: ‘“Why is it you can’t drink something when I give you and your brother done drink his already?’” At one point, Sealey broke down when recounting what she witnessed. Under cross-examination, she could not say whether or not her niece was coughing before she was given the tablet. Reports in 2014 were that the father of the Cadogan children had threatened to take them away from Rutherford the day before their demise. The matter continues before Justice Singh. Some 10 witnesses are set to testify.last_img read more

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal admits he still doesn’t know Anthony Martial’s best position

first_img Louis van Gaal has confessed his concern over the current form of Manchester United, and has admitted that he is still unsure over Anthony Martial’s best position. 1 Louis van Gaal has confessed his concern over the current form of Manchester United, and has admitted that he is still unsure over Anthony Martial’s best position.It’s now three games that the Red Devils have failed to score after they drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.And frustration very much remains over van Gaal’s attacking choices.Martial, signed for a potential £58million in the summer transfer window, again started on the left wing to allow Wayne Rooney to start up front – a decision that has predictably been met with criticism, as United failed to impress in the final third.“Of course (I’m concerned),” van Gaal said. “But when you are not creating so many chances I cannot complain.“After Middlesbrough (on Wednesday) we had created a lot of chances to finish, and then it is more concerning, but nevertheless today we had chances we could finish and then you win this game. That is our history until now, we have to improve that.“It was obvious that Crystal Palace started very well, they won every second or third ball and kept the pressure on us. The chance Ander Herrera had in the first half, you have to finish. We didn’t finish that.“In the second half, Palace were maybe more aggressive than the first half. We don’t develop our positional game and then you cannot create chances, you keep always the pressure on our goal. “(But) I cannot see that (United’s players) are lacking confidence. When I see their characters I don’t think they doubt their quality. It can change in one match.“We don’t know (Martial’s best position) yet because he played always in Monaco as a left winger; as manager I have to see what is the best balance in the team.“That’s not so simple, so I have to decide every week dependable on the game plan and qualities of opponent, and so on. In Monaco he played more or less always on the left wing.”last_img read more

DOHERTY’S FURY AFTER INSURANCE REVIEW GROUP TAKE SUMMER HOLIDAYS!

first_imgPearse Doherty TD says he is outraged that the Government review on the cost of insurance set up by the Minister for Finance will only meet for the first time next week and then not again until September. Deputy Doherty said this news summed up the failure of government to grasp the importance and urgency of the insurance cost crisis.The Donegal Deputy said he is extremely frustrated to hear from the Minister that this working group looking at the core issue of the reasons for the dramatic increases will only have its first meeting next week before taking a break until September. He said “This issue has been the focus of political and more importantly public anger for many months now and was the subject of a Dáil motion including a Sinn Féin amendment that won all party support last month. It is shocking that next week will be the first meeting of this review. For drivers seeking insurance over the summer the message is ‘you’re on your own’.“I am concerned too that there is still no time frame for the work on the reasons for the insurance increases to be completed in. It is clear that there is no understanding from government about the urgency of this issue and the anger it is causing.“I do welcome confirmation that, following the passing of the Dáil motion on this issue and my amendment to it, the scope of the review has been broadened. I presume this means the role of the Central Bank will now be reviewed as my accepted amendment explicitly called for.“I look forward to examining the other work on related issues that has been carried out including on flood insurance and the compensation framework including the fallout of the Setanta case. However, the primary focus must be on getting to the root causes of the increases faced day in, day out by drivers and putting a plan in place to stop the rip off. It is time to stop skirting around the issue and actually deal with it.” DOHERTY’S FURY AFTER INSURANCE REVIEW GROUP TAKE SUMMER HOLIDAYS! was last modified: July 15th, 2016 by StephenShare 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:donegalinsurance costsPearse Dohertylast_img read more

Joe Hart says goodbye to Torino as he awaits decision on Man City future

first_imgJoe Hart faces an uncertain future with Manchester City after returning from a year with Torino as the Premier League club reportedly negotiate the world-record capture of Benfica goalkeeper Ederson.Media reports in England and across Europe suggest Pep Guardiola’s City, who finished third in the domestic league, are in talks to sign 23-year-old keeper Ederson for £34.9million.On Sunday the Brazilian admitted he had “probably” played his last game for Benfica, hours after clinching a campaign double with victory in the Portuguese Cup, while over in Italy England stopper Hart represented Torino for the last time.After conceding three goals in the final game of his loan spell, a 5-3 home victory over Sassuolo, Hart bid farewell to the Torino fans. He will not return to Turin as the Serie A club cannot afford him.On Instagram he wrote: “Thank you Torino… I am so proud to have played for your special football club. The way you have treated me and my family is something that we will never forget.“I will forever support Torino for the rest of my days. I have met so many special people and this has been one of the greatest experiences of my life.“I will come back to see you all one day so it is bye for now, enjoy an amazing summer.”Hart returns to the Etihad Stadium unsure what City boss Guardiola has planned for him.Claudio Bravo endured a shaky start to life in England following his summer switch from Barcelona and while Willy Caballero has been released, the potential capture of Ederson could isolate Hart.The 70-time England international is in the 25-man squad to face Scotland and France in the next eight days and will face a battle to convince Guardiola he can reclaim the number-one jersey at City.While Caballero, Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas and Bacary Sagna are confirmed to be on their way out of the Etihad, Spanish striker Nolito hinted he could return to his homeland after a disappointing year.He told Tiempo de Juego on Sunday: “We will see what happens, I would like to go back to Spain, honestly, but it depends on City. I have a contract for two years and we will see what happens.” Joe Hart says goodbye to the Torino supporters 1last_img read more

49ers receiving corps needs help: Can Marquise Goodwin’s return open things up?

first_imgSANTA CLARA — Scrolling through the NFL reception leaders in search of a 49ers player is enough to get a repetitive strain injury. Click down past the top 10 … past the top 20 … past the three Los Angeles Rams … and aha!There’s tight end George Kittle, tied at No. 42 (with 23 catches).

Passengers want choice

first_imgAirlines passengers want choice and plenty of it. That is the unmistakable conclusion of a new survey by PricewaterhouseCooper LLP.In PwC’s US report Experience Radar 2013: Lessons Learned from the Airline Industry, the indelible lesson is “one approach doesn’t fit all,” says Jonathan Kletzel, PwC’s U.S. transportation and logistics leader. He says different consumer segments “from senior executives to budget-minded leisure travelers have different preferences and opinions on what constitutes great travel experience.”Case-in-point, DIY, or do-it-yourself travel options. PwC’s report says time-constrained, pedal-to-the metal business travelers are 1.8 times as likely than leisure travelers to use mobile devices to do routine booking and such. That doesn’t mean when things go really awry, however, that they’re willing to settle for virtual resolution of the problem. Passengers crave flesh-and-blood human intervention. “In fact,” says the survey, “two out of three flyers prefer an agent to help resolve issues such as cancelled or missed flights.”Just how well airline folks resolve those issues “is critical to travelers’ experiences and views of an airline,” concludes PwC. The less-than-satisfying revelation is that “49 percent of airline complaints and issues are said to go unaddressed.”PwC suggests “empowering” airline agents with the right kind of tools to really solve the problem, because bad news spreads fast these days. “99 percent of travelers worldwide share memorable experiences,” says the report. “Bad stories are told and retold.” Mad passengers equipped with mobile devices have a multiplier effect when it comes to how folks view flying, and that isn’t always good news for the airlines.No newsflash here, but PwC says, “Most leisure travelers want more space.” Leisure flyers are willing to pay a seven percent premium for more leg room and recline; six percent for more hip room. More carriers are willing to do just that these days, but certainly not all.As for being willing to pay up for moving up front, into first or business class, the survey finds “nearly one in five business travelers will pay for upgrades out of pocket.”There’s a not surprising 30 percent gap ‘twixt in-flight Wi-Fi usage separating leisure and business travelers according to PwC. A full 70 percent of business flyers demand wireless connectivity on long flights; leisure travelers spend about 40 percent of their time aloft using it.Then there’s bundling. Airlines are making a significant share of their profits by unbundling in-flight amenities: food, boarding order, seat pitch and such. PwC discovered lots of passengers, however, “prefer bundles that suit their travel needs and don’t require them to pay multiple fees.” The composition of those bundles differs by segment. Cost-sensitive travelers might like Wi-Fi, food, beverage and bags. Business flyers might opt for things like lounge access and luggage pick-up and delivery. The bottom line: whatever the composition of those fees, “building goodwill” means they need to be transparent.last_img read more
