#JAVotes2016: Andrew, Juliet Holness cast votes … report complaints of intimidation

first_imgLeader of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) Andrew Holness and his wife Juliet, have cast their ballots in the St Andrew Eastern constituency in which the party’s standard bearer, Fayval Williams is up against the People’s National Party (PNP), Andre Hylton. Williams was reportedly hand picked by Holness to be the JLP’s standard bearer in the tricky St Andrew Eastern constituency. Williams is a newcomer to the political process, while Hylton is a first term Member of Parliament. The couple entered the Mona High School at approximately 8 a.m. and was directed to PD 35, where he pressed flesh with voters before casting his ballot. Holness’ wife Juliet looked like a veteran in the political business as she first greeted the orange clad members of the PNP outdoor team before high fisting JLP outdoor agent’s with huge grins. He told The Gleaner that he was satisfied with the proceedings so far, although he has received a few complaints of intimidation. Holness also expressed confidence in the ability of his wife to win the neighbouring St Andrew East Rural seat, saying “Juliet knows what she is about.’ The polling station seemed ready for action, long before the 7 o’clock start time. But before the pair appeared at the centre, Beverley Manley, a former wife of former President of the PNP Michael Manley, was seen at the centre, to vote precisely at 7 a.m. The teams of outdoor agents from both the JLP and PNP were all in place just after 6:45 a.m. when The Gleaner arrived. Both sides announced their satisfaction with the arrangements. A long line of early voters were already queued station at 7 a.m. when the station was scheduled to be opened under the Representation of the People Act.last_img read more

They suffered their third defeat in four at Crystal Palace, where they lost 1-0 last Saturday. A fifth game without a win would be their worst run since November and December of last year.They return to St Mary’s where they have won only three of eight home games while scoring 13 goals which is actually two more than pace-setters Arsenal.Spurs are fifth despite last weekend’s loss but they have won only two while drawing four of their seven away games. But their defence has been mean on the road, conceding just seven goals – only Manchester City (6) have conceded fewer away goals.last_img read more

Criminal Lawyer Jason Doe Solves:

first_img     “DOROTHY CAME TO you with the information she had struck her husband’s head with a club and she thought he might be dead?”   “Yes.”   “What was the reason she came to you?”   “I don’t know.”   “It was not because when the couple left the club the night Mr. Jones was murdered,” the lawyer said, “you followed them and struck him from behind?”   “No.”   “It was not also because when you approached Mrs. Jones and she told you that she was already married you said you could find a way for you to get together?”   “No.”   “You had a quarrel with Mr. Jones?”  The witness shifted his position. “Actually, this quarrel had taken place a week before he died. At the time I was a little drunk.”    “What was the reason of the quarrel?”   “I wanted to know why he had accused me for going after his wife.”  “At the night of your fight, you sustained an injury and made some threatening remarks, against him.” “I don’t remember what I must have said.” “But suppose someone who was there came to testify that you made threatening statements against him?” “Well, in that case I would say I might have made some statements to that effect which could be hearsay.”“But you remember that you violently attacked him from behind?”  “I remember he wanted to fight me and I resisted.”  “Because he did not tell you why you allegedly claimed he said about your involvement with his wife?”  The prosecutor was on his feet.  “Your Honor, I think counsel is pulling the wrong strings about an incident that occurred a week before the murder. He is trying to confuse the witness.”   Judge Thomas Moore who had been following the proceedings, lowered his glasses beyond his nose, and glared at the defense counsel.  “Does counsel have any explanation?”   Jason Doe frowned.  “Your Honor, the situation demands a careful discovery of information from the witness on what could be the inherent motive behind the eventual murder of the decedent.  “I suspect to prove that the witness has a reason that can provide the resolution of this case.”  “Very well,” Judge Moore said, “you may continue.”  “The night after the incident,” the lawyer said, “Mrs. Jones wanted your complicity in the murder of her husband.”  “Yes.”  “And it was not because of any reason?” “She had her own reason,” the witness said. “She was apparently interested in a relationship with me.”  A low murmur swept across the court, but Jason Doe ignored it and pressed forward: “You testified that during your brief contact there were some juicy letters?”  “Like all love affairs,” the witness said coldly, “I received letters from her.”  “And she received some letters from you?”  “Something like that, Yes.”  “Why did you hesitate, Mr. Boyd?”  “Erhhhhh…” the witness fumbled and lowered his head with a grin. The lawyer strolled to the defense table, and searching through some documents extracted at least three of them, and returned to the witness.  “Mr. Boyd,” the lawyer said smiling, “I should remind you that you’re under oath and therefore we are going to read a couple of letters that you sent to Mrs. Jones.”  Suddenly, the witness’ composure changed dramatically and he began to perspire so profusely that Judge Moore intervened and called the two counsels to a brief meeting where Jason Doe informed him that the case had reached its climax with the evidence in his possession. The next twenty five minutes the clerk, assisted by a court appointed doctor, went to the witness’ assistance. When he was finally able to continue with the trial, the moment Jason Doe stood up to continue his cross-examination, the witness said he felt as if he had been crushed under the weight of circumstances.  “Do you remember some of the information in your letters to the defendant, Mr. Boyd?”    In a low tone of voice, he replied, “I can remember some.”    The lawyer raised one of the letters to get the witness a glimpse of his handiwork. “You wrote this letter three days before the murder occurred, and I’m going to hand the letter over to the judge.”    The judge grabbed the first of three letters from the extended hand of the lawyer, and smiling ran his eyes through it, and handed it to the clerk to read it.   Judge Moore asked the witness if he had anything to say about the letter, before it was read, and the witness said being a funny man, he had the habit of writing letters to women with “some crazy ideas about killing their husbands that I did not mean to do anything stupid in reality.” Judge Moore readjusted his position on the bench, and gazed directly at the witness.    He said, “You wrote those letters?”   “I might have.”  “Is that yes or no?” the judge persisted.   “Yes.”   “I am assuming you take responsibility for what you wrote in the past, whether good or bad?”   “But a joke is a joke because mistakes are allowed to be made,” the witness said.   The judge considered his reply for a moment.  “Who said that mistakes are allowed to be made when we are dealing with the law?”   The judge then readjusted his glasses on his nose. He turned to the defense table and only to be met with the tear-filled eyes of the defendant that spoke nothing but the humiliation of having been accused of murdering the man she had come to love and cared about.   “Look at the defendant,” Judge Moore instructed the witness, “and tell me what your lies have made her?”  The witness began to fuss with his hands, and said under his breath that he was sorry. The judge lifted his gaze and shook the letter in his hand at the witness, “Uncontrolled jealousy has doomed you.”   “You were so desperate that you allowed your desire for the defendant to lead you to commit a heinous crime like murder and as a result destroyed a model family, and the law is interested to know how you succumbed to such self-destruction.   “This Court takes exceptional interest in the final resolution of this case when it comes to trial and hopes that we will find satisfaction and condemn violence as the last resort to get, for example, power, love and riches.”  But Judge Moore’s poignant final remark was too telling to ignore, “The explosions of human passion bring to light the darker elements of man’s nature, as this case has revealed and as a result its adjudication demands the highest understanding of human nature.”  Jason Doe laughed, and nodded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Prosecutor Samson Weah regarded the witness with sympathetic eye.“What happened afterward, Joe Boyd?” “He told me that if he had his way, I would be dead.” “Why?”  “Because he said I was following his wife and that night we had a quarrel where I sustained an injury on my right hand.”  “Did you follow his wife?”  “No.”  The prosecutor’s smile was triumphant, and sweeping his head away from the spectators, said, “Boyd, what happened on the first weekend of May?”  “I met the defendant, Dorothy Jones when I came out of a pharmacy store. “She said she wanted to speak with me. I went closer to her and she said she had lost money to buy food for her son and wanted me to help if I could.  “I thought about it and felt the need to help since she had approached me on the issue. It was not that I was really interested to spend money that easy.”   A murmur swept across the courtroom.  The prosecutor said, “What happened next, Boyd?”  With still a smile at the corner of his mouth, the witness said, “I pulled out a wad of bills and took out Ld500 and handed it to her. “She told me how great she was to have met me, and even explained that since I moved in the area, she had had some admiration for me.”  “Like a secret admirer?”  The witness smiled, and said, “That kind.” “How did you feel then?” “Well,” the witness said, “I’m a man and when someone is admiring me, particularly a woman and secretly, I felt rather good.”  The prosecutor could not fail to smile. “She did suggest something to you, and there were a couple of juicy letters from her?”  Folding his arms, the witness said, “Yes, she gave me the indication she was interested in a form of relationship.”  “Did you know she was married?”  “No, but I knew she had a child.”  “Ok,” the prosecutor said, “then what happened?”  “I told her I was kind of surprise that a beautiful woman like her was still not married.  “She smiled and said she was waiting for the right man.  “When I asked her about the father of her child, she played my question down and said rather that it was a mistake she made in her life.” “Did you really believe her?” “Somehow yes,” the witness said, “for I did not put any word in her mouth.  “I then suggested to her that since she was a single woman and I was also a single man, I think the chemistry was perfect.”  The courtroom once again exploded into a mild laughter, and Judge Thomas Moore responded with his gavel to restore calm, with the statement, “The Court will not hesitate to hold any spectator contempt and therefore the court insists that spectators must behave as proceedings continue.”   “Thanks Your Honor,” the prosecutor said, and turned to the witness: “With a correct chemistry, you decided to do what?”  With a smile wedged at the corner of his mouth, the witness shifted his position. “We planned to meet and that same evening, we met at a local drinking spot.  “Later I realized that a man who had come with her, who identified himself as Willie Jones, was in fact the man she was living with.”  “What did Willie Jones tell you about his relationship with Dorothy Jones?”  The witness hesitated. “He told me he was her brother.”   “Tell the court what occurred one week after your meeting.”  The witness adjusted his position and swept his head back. “He came to me with a request for USD500.”  “The decedent, Willie Jones’ body was found three hours after his visit to your house, did you engage him in a fight?”   “I did not engage him in a fight, though he ranted and threatened to make trouble for me.”   “You met the defendant the same night of her husband’s murder?”  “Yes, she said she had by accident knocked her husband’s head with a club and she thought he might be dead.  “She told me that now that he was dead, it was time for us to make his death to appear as if it happened during an armed robbery.”   “What did you do next?”   “I told her it could be that way but I felt if I refuse her anything, she could kill me.”    “So it was the defendant in this case, meaning Mrs. Dorothy Jones who confessed to you that she had struck her husband’s head with a club and she thought he might be dead?”    “Yes.”     “Mr. Boyd, did you kill Willie Jones or did you have any reason to have him dead?”    “No,” the witness said, “I did not.” Turning to defense, the prosecutor said, “Your Witness.”last_img read more

Brown rules out early election in Britain

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityLONDON – Prime Minister Gordon Brown ruled out calling an early election Saturday, ending weeks of speculation that he would soon seek a stronger mandate from the electorate. Brown said he wanted his government, which has been in office for just over 100 days, to have time to show voters how it would transform public services and the economy. Opponents accused him of being afraid to face the public after a series of opinion polls suggested his electoral lead was evaporating. “I’ll not be calling an election,” Brown told the British Broadcasting Corp. “I have a vision for change in Britain, and I want to show people how in government we’re implementing it.” Brown replaced Tony Blair as prime minister in June, and does not have to call an election until May 2010. But there has been widespread speculation that he would call an early election to seek his own, five-year mandate and to increase the Labour Party’s majority in Parliament. VOTE: Some call the move a “retreat,” but the leader says he just wants more time. By Jill Lawless THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Conservative leader David Cameron said the decision not to face voters was “a humiliating retreat.” “I think the prime minister has shown great weakness and indecision,” he said. Brown’s reputation for staid competence, forged during a decade as Treasury chief, carried over into the first months of his premiership. The taciturn Scot enjoyed a comfortable lead in polls over the summer thanks to his sure-footed handling of several potential crises, including the failed car bombings in London and Glasgow, floods in England and an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease. Even during recent financial jitters, which prompted a run on deposits at mortgage lender Northern Rock PLC, few people blamed Brown. Brown scheduled a high-profile statement on Iraq to the House of Commons for Monday and a major Treasury announcement for Tuesday, leading many to initially suspect that he planned to announce this week that an election would be held in November. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘NOONAN REFUSING TO ANSWER BASIC QUESTIONS ON BANK DEAL’ – DOHERTY

Sinn Féin finance spokesperson, Pearse Doherty TD has said Minister for Finance Michael Noonan must answer basic questions on Ireland’s banking negotiations.“Today, I engaged directly with Minister Noonan on the critical issue of Ireland’s Promissory Notes payments. This is the first time in two very eventful weeks that as a TD I have had a chance to quiz the Minister on the developments. His failure to respond and dismissal of Sinn Féin’s questions as negative is a disgrace,” said the Donegal TD.“This week we know the ECB rejected Ireland’s preferred option of dealing with the Anglo-Irish Promissory Notes. We have also heard prominent economists state that they believe Ireland will have to pay the €3.1 billion due on the notes at the end of March. “The minister must face reality and accept that the public needs to know what is happening. Using the Bertie Ahern approach of ignoring the issue and dismissing the questioner is not good enough.“I asked the minister several straight forward questions, for example:“Will Governor Honohan be bringing another proposal to next week’s ECB Governing Council?“Why after 18 months did the government present such an easily dismissed proposal to the ECB? “And most importantly: What will any deal or lack of deal mean for next year’s budgets ,for our health and education services and for families struggling to pay the bills?“These are basic questions that it is my duty as an opposition spokesperson to put to the Minister.“After nearly two years he has yet to show that his government is capable of standing up for Ireland and delivering a sustainable deal on our banking debt. Now, he is failing to answer basic questions about his banking policy.“The public deserve to know if the government has any real plan to prevent €3 billion of taxpayer’s money being wasted again this year.” ‘NOONAN REFUSING TO ANSWER BASIC QUESTIONS ON BANK DEAL’ – DOHERTY was last modified: January 31st, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:’NOONAN REFUSING TO ANSWER BASIC QUESTIONS ON BANK DEAL’ – DOHERTY read more

HSE: Misuse of antibiotics is making them less effective, causing new superbugs

first_imgThe HSE is marking European Antibiotic Awareness Day by appealing to the public to only use antibiotics when prescribed, and for the right duration, in a bid to avoid antibiotic resistance.The key message being circulated today is that the more we use antibiotics, the more antibiotic-resistant bacteria we make and this means that patients who really need antibiotics are less likely to get better than they would have 10 or 20 years ago.One of the major threats facing public health is antibiotic resistence. Modern healthcare is only possible due to these life-saving medicines; however misuse has led to new superbugs such as CPE, which Health Minister Simon Harris has called a “national public health emergency.” Antibiotics can cause more harm than good; they should be used only as prescribed and when needed. Taking antibiotics you don’t need can make you sick and is setting back a lot of the progress that has been made in medicine over recent decades, the HSE says.The HSE wish to remind the public of the following:Antibiotics don’t work for colds or flu. If you have a cold or flu, visit www.undertheweather.ie for advice on how to help yourself get better and ask your doctor for advice if you are concerned.Antibiotics should be taken exactly as prescribed – at the right time for the right duration.Always finish an antibiotic course – even if you feel a lot better. This is to ensure that all the bacteria are killed completely and that no survivors are left that could multiply and develop resistance.Taking antibiotics when they aren’t needed means that you are taking a risk of a side effect for absolutely no benefit. Antibiotics can cause skin rash, diarrhoea, thrush or other side effects.If you have a serious infection that really needs the antibiotic you have to risk the side effects. If you don’t need an antibiotic you take the risk with absolutely no gain and that is why doctors now prefer not to give you an antibiotic unless you really need it. Professor Martin Cormican, Consultant Microbiologist and HSE National Lead for HCAI/AMR says: “When properly used antibiotics have been wonder drugs. In the last century they were called ‘magic bullets’ because in a very ill patient antibiotics like penicillin were literally like magic, they precisely hit a lethal target in the bacteria.“Antibiotics changed the way we provide healthcare, improved our life expectancy rates and allowed doctors to provide a huge range of critical life-saving services to patients for decades.“Prior to their discovery, a simple blood infection was often the cause of serious illness and death. As prescribers, it is vital that we prescribe antibiotics to maximise the likelihood of successfully treating infections, while minimising the risk of antibiotic resistance and reducing harm to our patients”.The HSE, in partnership with pharmacists and general practitioners has a website which gives practical, common sense advice and information on dealing with many common illnesses like colds, flu, earaches, sore throats, tummy bugs and rashes.www.undertheweather.ie provides sound advice to give us the confidence and skill we need to take care of ourselves and our families without resorting to antibiotics.
