The Brazilian has more goals than Harry Kane this season, often finding himself further forward than the England striker as he cuts in from the right wing. It seems to be a similar tactic to Liverpool, where right winger Mohamed Salah often plays in advance of central striker Roberto Firmino, who can drop deeper like Kane.Son is coming off his best season for Tottenham, scoring 18 times in all competitions and proving as adept at filling in as a striker in the absence of Kane as playing in his usual position on the left wing.With Erik Lamela also providing competition in attack and both Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen seemingly mainstays in Pochettino’s team, Pochettino has never had such a wealth of options up front.Tottenham started the Premier League with three straight wins before losing at Watford 2-1 before the break for international matches.MORATA’S MISSIONAlvaro Morata might be running out of opportunities to convince Maurizio Sarri that he should be the first-choice striker at Chelsea.Morata has one goal in his first five games of the season — after a preseason when he failed to score at all — and looked off the pace in Chelsea’s most recent games, against Newcastle and Bournemouth.Olivier Giroud, who scored a spectacular volley for France in the international break, has impressed as a substitute for Chelsea and might have convinced Sarri he is worthy of a start against Cardiff on Saturday.Alternatively, Sarri could repeat what he did to such good effect at former club Napoli last season and play three smaller, more energetic forwards in the front line in Eden Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez, and Willian. At Napoli, Sarri used Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens, and Lorenzo Insigne.Either way, Morata’s spot looks up for grabs as he struggles to prove worthy of the club-record fee of 58 million pounds (now $80 million) that Chelsea spent to sign him from Real Madrid in the offseason of 2017.

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, two gun-toting bandits invaded the home of newspaper distributor Sasenarine Ramsuchit at Lot 21 “CC” Eccles New Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara.They beat the 64-year-old businessman to his head, inflicting wounds that had to receive 10 stitches; and shot his wife, 58-year-old Joyce Lauren Ramsuchit, who had to be admitted a patient at the Georgetown Public Hospital.When the ordeal was finally over, the Ramsuchits had been robbed of a bag containing money and jewellery, and his son’s laptop and other electronic devices had been taken away.The injured businessman related that he was heading out of his yard to commence his daily distribution at about 03:30h when he was attacked by two armed men, who held him at gunpoint and ordered him back into the house. While in the house, the bandits ordered his wife and son into his bedroom, and instructed them to lie on the floor.The men then demanded money and jewellery, but when he hesitated to comply with their request, he was beaten to the head and other parts of his body whilst his son and wife looked on. During the ordeal, one of the men then placed a gun to his wife’s body and threatened that, if she did not hand over the money, he would shoot her. After some hesitation from the woman, the bandit discharged a round, hitting the woman to one of her legs.The men then ransacked a wardrobe, where they came across a bag containing money and jewellery. This they took, along with his son’s laptop and other electronic devices, before escaping.Ramsuchit believes that the men had been monitoring his movements over time, since they came at 03:30h, the exact time he would leave home on a daily basis. He also noted that the men emerged from behind his home, leaving him to believe that they had hidden themselves while they waited on him to exit the house.Ramsuchit detailed that after the men had left, he alerted his neighbours to what had happened, then attended to his injured wife, picking her up and taking her to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was admitted. The bullet that was lodged in the leg has been removed.The Police were subsequently summoned, and an investigation has been launched. No arrests have as yet been made.
A seven-year-old boy has become the latest road fatality after he was struck down by a motorcar along the Aurora Public Road, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).Dead is Jagdesh Mohanlall of Aurora Village. Reports are 42-year-old Gobin Chandrika, a businessman, was driving his motorcar, PNN 9465 along the Aurora Public Road, when the child reportedly ran out of a yard and into the path of the moving vehicle.Chandrika allegedly attempted to avoid the collision, but the left side of the vehicle came into contact with the lad. Due to the impact, he sustained injuries and was taken to the Suddie Public Hospital where he succumbed while receiving medical attention.A breathalyser test was administered on the driver, who hails from Hibernia, Essequibo Coast and it proved that he was above the legal limit of alcohol consumption.He was taken into Police custody and is assisting with the investigations. Police in March stated that they have recorded an 18.1 per cent decrease in fatal accidents up to the end of February 2018.The Guyana Police Force stated speeding, inattentiveness and pedestrian crossing in the path of approaching vehicles were the main causes of fatal accidents.Statistics also showed that there were 2935 recorded cases of speeding, 752 instances of breach of condition of road service licence, 247 cases of persons driving under the influence of alcohol, 165 cases of persons using their cellular phones while driving, and it was also reported that 254 drivers breached the traffic light signals.
“We will be presenting a live, interactive, engaging show on the science of energy that will take the participants through a series of demonstrations from where energy comes from… how it is stored, whether that’s in the water table, in plants that go into fossil fuels; how it is released and how it is transported,” President and CEO of Science World B.C., Bryan Tisdall explained.Some of the interactive demonstrations of energy one can expect includes Tesla Coil, a lightning bolt that shoots 1 – 2 feet into the air, creating an electric field that can power a fluorescent tube from several feet away; Lycopodium Fireball — demonstrating the energy that can be released by burning organic matter (wood, plants), creating a 2 foot fireball in the air using club moss spores, and Liquid Nitrogen — allowing you to see how the properties of materials change as they are immersed in -196 degree Celsius Liquid Nitrogen.Tisdall says while Science World is tied to the province’s LNG seminars, they are not looking to persuade opinions one way or the other.- Advertisement -“Particularly across the northern and north-eastern parts of the province, energy and more specifically natural gas is a very hot topic right now,” Tisdall goes on to say. “So what better way to reach people and impress upon them the importance of science and technology generally, and energy more specifically, than getting involved with the province and these seminars they’re presenting.”Tidall adds, “A basic understanding of energy and what it is forms the foundation for informed decisions, and whether folks decide to support or not to support various policies, programs, industries going forward is up to the individual – but we clearly want that decision to be made on an informed basis and that’s the role we believe Science World most appropriately plays.”The demonstrations were developed by scientist with PhD’s but they will be presented by Science World staff with a background in science, and in some cases, a background in performance as well.Advertisement “There will be some families with young children involved in some parts of the day, throughout the two-days there will be secondary students who will be visiting the seminars; there will be adults in the audience as well,” Tidall said. “So we need to have a group of presenters… who can adapt the message and the dialogue they will have to various different audience groups.”The presentations are being held at the North Peace Cultural Centre from November 4 – 5. The seminar runs on Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Wednesday 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
The First Nation’s Leadership Council is now on record as extremely concerned construction will commence prior to the July 20 beginning of the Federal Court challenge by the Treaty 8 Nations and other dam opponents who are seeking a judicial review of Ottawa’s decision to support the project.Robert Phillips of the First Nations Summit political executive says, “The provincial government seems to have tunnel vision when it comes to building this project.”Phillips adds, “By denying the Treaty 8 First Nations their day in court, the government is making an outright statement it is above democratic rights and the judicial system.”However, Mr. Conway says, “We can’t speculate on where the court cases will go or how long they will take.Advertisement A news release from the First Nation’s Leadership Council last week suggested July could be the month when push comes to shove in the debate over the construction of the Peace River Site C dam.It said the Treaty 8 First Nations had received notice from BC Hydro that as early as July 6 — five days prior to the tenth annual Paddle for the Peace protest event — construction work could begin at the project site.However, spokesman Dave Conway still says the exact date will depend on when Hydro gets back permits to start work on Crown land.- Advertisement -“It’s not our intent to do any work until probably mid-July,” Conway said.“That type of work would be things like initial mobilization, site preparation, things like fencing, getting security down to site, nothing on the large side.”Conway added: “We still have the main civil works contract that’s out. We have four short-listed proponents for that and that’s the actual contract for the construction of the dam. We hope to be able to name a preferred proponent… this fall.”Advertisement “We’re continuing to do the things we can do, conscious of moving forward in a slow and measured manner, and we’ll see what the outcome of the court cases are.”We note again Hydro is hosting a series of July open houses in Fort St. John, Taylor, Hudson’s Hope, Chetwynd and Dawson Creek, to provide more information to the public about its construction planning.It should also be noted these meetings are in addition to the forthcoming Hydro job fairs in Fort St. John, Chetwynd, and Tumbler Ridge.More information is available from the local Chamber of Commerce office at 250-785-6037 or the project website at sitecproject.com.
NEW YORK – Oil futures jumped to a new record above $97 a barrel Tuesday after bombings in Afghanistan and an attack on a Yemeni oil pipeline compounded the supply concerns that have driven crude prices higher in recent weeks. Those concerns also were fed by a government prediction on Tuesday that domestic oil inventories will fall further this year while consumption rises. At the pump, meanwhile, gas prices keep rising, following oil’s 39percent price rally since August. The national average price of a gallon of gas jumped 2 cents overnight to $3.024 a gallon, according to AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. Separately, the federal Energy Information Administration reported that diesel fuel prices reached a national average of $3.303 a gallon, a new record. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Light, sweet crude for December delivery rose $2.72 to settle at a record $96.70 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange on Tuesday after earlier rising as high as $97.10, a new trading record. Oil’s seemingly relentless climb raises the question of how high energy prices will go. If crude does keep going up, it might be some time until consumers see relief at the pump. Some analysts predict prices could rise as high as $3.50 to $4 a gallon next summer. The Energy Information Administration predicts gas prices will remain above $2.90 a gallon for the rest of the year, and will set a new record national average of $3.235 a gallon by May. In May 2007, prices peaked at $3.227 a gallon as refiners, faced with a series of unexpected outages, struggled to produce enough gas to meet demand. Meanwhile, estimates of where oil is headed from here range from $50 a barrel to $120. Some analysts believe supplies will get tighter as the year wears on, supporting prices. Others argue that prices have been driven artificially higher by speculative investing. The EIA expects crude oil prices to rise from an average of $71.36 a barrel this year to $79.92 a barrel next year. On Tuesday, oil was already up before news of the blasts in northern Afghanistan that killed 28 people and the attack in Yemen. Severe weather forecasts for the North Sea, expectations that domestic crude supplies fell last week and the weak dollar all contributed to the latest move upward.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GARDAI are warning that criminal gangs are now targeting Donegal – and not just because our nights are getting longer.Crime Prevention Officer Sgt Paul Wallace says thieves can also strike during daylight hours.And the Halloween break which begins next weekend gives crooks loads of opportunities. Here are 14 simple steps to making you and your family more secure during mid-term and on Halloween night:1) Lock before you leave – before you leave the house to go trick or treating, lock all doors and windows, even the upstairs ones. Fit restrictors on windows if possible as thieves can wriggle through any gap larger than a human head. Fit locks at the top and bottom of patio doors.2) Be alarmed – don’t forget to set your burglar alarm. In the excitement of Halloween activity, it is not uncommon for people to forget to do the obvious! Visible alarms make burglars think twice and make sure to get your system serviced regularly.3) Make your home look occupied – try to put burglars off by giving the impression that there is still someone in the house. Leave the lights on in living areas and draw the curtains. If you’re out of town on a Halloween break, maybe fit a timer to lamps around the house, so that they will automatically switch on at dusk. 4) Keep your car secure – use your car alarm or steering lock and don’t leave items in your car that could be tempting to burglars, like Sat Nav or stereo systems, CDs or bags. Always put your car in the garage if you have one and make sure the garage is locked. If you have a gate – CLOSE IT!5) Don’t advertise the fact that you’re out – If you’re going away for a Halloween or mid-term break, be careful about who you tell and what information you post on social networking sites. Check your social media settings to see who has access to your personal details and try to limit to friends only – otherwise strangers (and potential burglars) can see everything you post and will know your house is currently empty.6) That’s bogus dude – to hamper bogus callers, fit a security chain to your front (and back) doors. If a stranger knocks on your door, stop, check the chain is on and verify the caller’s identification before opening your door.7) Protect your pets – don’t leave pets outside on dark evenings and when you are not at home. Pet theft is on the increase in Donegal and even crossbreeds and mongrels can be of value to unscrupulous people.8) See the light – make sure your outdoor lighting is working and is on a sensor. Visible alarms that light up at night will also make burglars think twice about targeting your house. 9) Gnome sweet gnome – never leave ornaments or garden items or ornaments outside during the winter months – they can be used to break windows and doors or cause general damage to cars and property.10) Inspect your gadgets – ensure that mobiles, laptops and other gadgets are hidden from view. Use an ultraviolet pen to mark items of value, such as televisions and DVD players, with your postcode and house number. This will help gardaí to identify your property more easily if it’s stolen. Try to make sure that larger valuable items, such as guitars, TVs and stereos, can’t easily be seen through windows. Leaving valuable items, including car and house keys, on show gives burglars an incentive to break into your home.11) Shed your fears – make sure that outbuildings such as sheds and garages are locked and alarmed, and securely store any ladders, tools or ornaments that could be used to break windows and doors and help burglars break into to your home. Don’t leave shed or garage keys in view as windows can easily be smashed to reach them and gain entry.12) Everybody needs good neighbours – neighbours should stick together so ask people living close by to keep an eye on the house while you’re out. If you’re out of town, give someone key so they can come in, draw the curtains and help make the house look like it’s lived in. It’s a good idea to leave your keys with someone you trust along with details of how to contact you in the event of an emergency. 13) Ensure you’re insured – check your household insurance cover. Opening up your home to visitors, even if they are just trick-or-treaters on the front porch, can expose you to potential insurance claims and lawsuits.14) Text Alert – join your local scheme and get warnings out to neighbours instantly. If you are not in a scheme, you can help set one up at your nearest garda station.CRIME ALERT: SIMPLE STEPS TO PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY was last modified: October 16th, 2015 by John2Share 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:AdvicecrimedonegalHalloweenMid-Term break
