It came to an end when their neighbours, who had heard the woman’s screams for help, dragged him away from his victim.He continually threatened the 72-year-old woman, telling her “You are going tonight and I’ll go with you”. The neighbours heard him shout at her “If I don’t get you someone else will. You’ll get a bullet in the head.”O’Connor pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to assaulting Phyllis O’Connor causing her harm and threatening to kill her at Thatch Road, Whitehall, Dublin on 19 July 2016. He is now living in a Dublin nursing home where he continues to receive psychiatric care.Garda David Crowley told Anne Rowland BL, prosecuting that O’Connor, who was being treated in a psychiatric hospital for bipolar disorder at the time, told his psychiatrist the following day that it had been his plan to drag the woman upstairs and smother her with a pillow but he thought she would be too heavy.The accused said if he had managed to get the woman upstairs “she would have been a goner”.He told his psychiatrist he had been at a meeting with his solicitor that day about their divorce. He was drinking in the pub later getting more and more angry because she was in the marital home and he was homeless.O’Connor admitted that he had “got it into my head to kill her”. He said he waited outside the house until no one was around.He said he told his wife “I’ll have you now” and “You won’t have a minute’s peace. I’ll wait for you to kill you”.His psychiatrist reported that O’Connor showed no remorse that day and was still angry with his wife.Phyllis O’Connor was later treated for cuts and bruises to her face, neck and arms. She didn’t make a victim impact report but has since secured a barring order against her husband.Judge Melanie Greally said O’Connor had been prevented from carrying out his intentions on the night only because of the intervention of their neighbours. She said unfortunately at that stage the woman had already sustained a number of blows to her face and neck.The judge noted that, although Phyllis O’Connor had not prepared a victim impact report, she could assume that it was a very distressing incident. She said she her marks and bruises must have caused her considerable embarrassment.Judge Greally suspended the three year term in full on condition that O’Connor remain in an appropriately sanctioned nursing home, continue with his medication and refrain from having any contact with his wife.Additional evidenceJudge Greally acknowledged that the assault took place during a period when the couple were involved in divorce proceedings and accepted evidence that O’Connor had never treated his wife in this way during their marriage.She accepted that O’Connor was being treated for bipolar at the time, which was exacerbated by excessive drinking and anger management issues.The judge took into account his admissions of guilt, lack of previous convictions, serious psychiatric condition and the fact that he was unlikely to come to garda attention again if he continued with his medical treatment.Detective Garda Crowley agreed with Luigi Rea BL, defending that his client and the victim previously had a very good relationship and a good family home. He accepted that he had never mistreated his wife before and had since displayed respect for her in his dealings with the gardaí.He further accepted that O’Connor had since stayed away from the marital home and had not come to any garda attention since.Rea said his client had a son in a court to support him. He said another son had previously passed away and this had exacerbated O’Connor’s problems.He asked Judge Greally to accept that this was a once off incident never to be repeated and his client was remorseful for the fear and injuries he caused his wife.“I ask that he be given the only chance he has ever asked for,” Rea submitted.Read: Man found with video showing sexual abuse of five-year-old girl asks judge to spare him jailRead: Photos of children used in Doonbeg brochure without consent of parents Man avoids jail for attacking 72-year-old estranged wife The 74-year-old man burst into the home he had previously shared with his wife and shouted “surprise” before he launched a sustained assault.

Senators plan would reopen government raise debt ceiling

first_imgWASHINGTON — With talks having stalled between the White House and House Republicans, a bipartisan group in the Senate is polishing a measure that would reopen the government and prevent a first-ever default on the country’s bills.The negotiations in the Senate come as the chamber meets in a rare Saturday session to vote on a Democratic measure to lift the government’s borrowing cap through the end of next year. Republicans are poised to reject it amid talks among the group of rank-and-file senators — talks monitored with the full attention of Senate leaders.The bipartisan group’s focus is on a proposal by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and others that would pair a six-month plan to keep the government open with an increase in the government’s borrowing limit through January. House Republicans, meanwhile, are slated to meet this morning to get an update from their leaders as matters come to a head.President Barack Obama on Friday privately turned away a House plan to link the reopening of the government — and a companion measure to temporarily increase the government’s borrowing cap — to concessions on the budget. Publicly, top House Republicans said negotiations were on track. Obama called House Speaker John Boehner at midafternoon Friday, and Michael Steel, a spokesman for the leader of House Republicans, said, “They agreed that we should all keep talking.”last_img read more

UN says 582000 Rohingyas have now crossed into Bangladesh

first_imgRohingyas from Myanmar cross the border to stream towards Ukhia in Bangladesh. 16 October, Anjuman Para, Palongkhali, Ukhia. Photo: Saiful IslamSome 582,000 Rohingya refugees have now fled Myanmar for Bangladesh since late August, the United Nations said Tuesday, warning that thousands more were still stranded at the border.The UN said between 10,000 and 15,000 new refugees have arrived at the border in the last 48 hours alone, fleeing violence in Myanmar, where Rohingya villages are being burned to the ground.It expressed deep concern about newly arrived refugees including children and elderly people dehydrated and hungry from the long journey who are stranded near the border.One Bangladesh Border Guard (BGB) official told AFP on condition of anonymity that the new arrivals were being held in an area of no man’s land, although it was not immediately clear why.Spokesman Andrej Mahecic said the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) was advocating with the Bangladesh authorities “to urgently admit these refugees fleeing violence and increasingly difficult conditions back home”.He said UNHCR staff had spoken with people who described walking for a week to reach the Bangladesh border.Most are still squatting in paddy fields in Bangladesh, and were waiting for permission to move away from the border, he said.”Every minute counts given the fragile condition they’re arriving in,” said Mahecic.Mahecic said many had chosen to remain in their homes in Myanmar’s Rakhine state despite repeated threats to leave or be killed.”They finally fled when their villages were set on fire,” he said.Many of the new arrivals were from Rakhine’s Buthidaung district, which lies relatively far from the border with Bangladesh.”The military killed my brother. We walked all the way to this land to save our lives,” said Mohammad Shoeb, who arrived at the border with his family on Monday evening.The UN said a jump of 45,000 in its estimated number of newly arrived refugees to 582,000 was due partly to improved access to some areas where many had previously gone uncounted.That figure does not include the thousands currently in no man’s land.The Rohingya are fleeing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, where the UN has accused troops of waging an ethnic cleansing campaign against them.The numbers have soared since August 25, when militant attacks on Myanmar’s security forces in Rakhine sparked a major military backlash.Hundreds more have drowned making the perilous journey. On Monday authorities said they had found the bodies of 10 Rohingya whose boat sank in the estuary of the Naf river that divides the two countries.The UNHCR said it was working with the Bangladesh government to complete a new transit centre in Kutupalong, the largest of the refugee camps housing the Rohingya.Bangladesh has announced plans to build a refugee camp that could accommodate around 800,000 Rohingya in Kutupalong.The camp would be the largest in the world and has raised concerns about the risks of heavily concentrating such a large number of vulnerable people, such as the spread of disease.last_img read more

Man Convicted of Killing Son Arrested in Death of Girlfriends Baby

first_imgBy Michelle Richardson, Special to the AFROA man who once spent time in prison for the death of his own son, has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriends 18-month-old child; one of two children who died of murder on consecutive days (the other was seven-year old Taylor Hayes), in Baltimore.Francois Browne, 35, was taken into custody July 20 and charged with first degree murder, according to the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).Francois Browne, 35, was taken into custody July 20 and charged with the murder of his girlfriend’s 18-month-old baby. He spent three years in prison after being charged in the death of his son in 2012. (Courtesy Photo)According to police, Emergency Medical Services responded to the 2800 block of Forest Glen Road in West Baltimore on July 18, at approximately 9:30 p.m. for a report of an unconscious and unresponsive child. Zaray Gray was in the care of Browne at the time when his mother arrived home and found him not breathing. The baby was transported to Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.According to police, doctors at the hospital told detectives that baby Zaray had visible injuries on his body and an X-ray confirmed at least one broken bone. In 2012, Browne spent three years in prison for the death of his biological son, seven-month old Kendall Browne. According to court documents, Browne was alone with his son on New Year’s Eve when he told police he played with his son before they both fell asleep. Browne allegedly told police that when he awoke he found baby Kendall not breathing and that he attempted to perform CPR on the child.Baby Kendall spent several days on life support before he died and his death was the first homicide of 2013, said Baltimore Police. Court documents show he sustained severe head trauma, bleeding on the brain and fractured ribs.Browne was being held at Baltimore Central Booking and Intake Center at press time.last_img read more

Testing proves giant eyes of netcasting spider help with nocturnal foraging

first_img The net-casting spider is shown holding the band of wooly silk that it uses to engulf and capture prey. UNL doctoral student Jay Stafstrom spent two months in a Florida state park observing the spider’s hunting behavior. Credit: Courtesy Jay Stafstrom Journal information: Biology Letters © 2016 Phys.org Many visitors to Florida have been alarmed by the sight of a small spider with humongous eyes—the net casting spider, so named because of the unusual shape of the webs it creates—fortunately, the spiders are harmless to humans. Interestingly, until now, no one has gone to the trouble of actual testing the spiders to fully understand why they have such big eyes—the largest proportionally, for any arachnid.To prove the theory that the big eyes evolved to help with night foraging, the researchers started by video-taping several of them as they went about their activities in their natural environment. Then, they captured some samples and applied dental silicone over the single pair of big eyes (net-casters, like other spiders have eight eyes altogether, the others eyes are much smaller) temporarily blinding those eyes. The research pair then recorded the activities of the spiders as they tried to survive without benefit of their huge eyes.In studying the results, the researchers found that the blinded spiders were much weaker hunters when their big eyes were covered. Removing the eye covers allowed the spiders to regain their former skill levels.In a second test, the researchers conducted a similar experiment, except they did it in a controlled environment in their lab. In studying the results, the researchers found almost identical results.

This study focuses on one such extreme sensory structure—the posterior median eyes of the net-casting spider Deinopis spinosa. Although past research has implicated the importance of vision in the nocturnal foraging habits of Deinopis, no direct link between vision in the enlarged eyes and nocturnal foraging has yet been made. To directly test the hypothesis that the enlarged posterior median eyes facilitate visually based nocturnal prey capture, we conducted repeated-measures, visual occlusion trials in both natural and laboratory settings. Our results indicate that D. spinosa relies heavily on visual cues detected by the posterior median eyes to capture cursorial prey items. We suggest that the enlarged posterior median eyes benefit D. spinosa not only through increased diet breadth, but also by allowing spiders to remain active solely at night, thus evading predation by diurnal animals.Press release A new study from UNL biologists has revealed that the net-casting spider’s secondary eyes — the largest of any arachnid — likely evolved in part to help it capture walking prey. Credit: Courtesy Jay Stafstrom (Phys.org)—A pair of researchers has tested the theory that the enormous eyes sported by net-casting spiders are to help the spider capture walking prey at night. In their paper published in the journal Biology Letters, Jay Stafstrom and Eileen Hebets, both with the University of Nebraska, describe field and lab experiments they carried out that showed the purpose of the oversized eyes. The research pair suggest their study shows that net-casting spiders use their huge eyes to hunt walking prey at night; they allow for catching prey in near dark conditions—prey which is very often much larger than they would catch with their net only. They noted also that the partially blinded spiders were just as adept at dealing with prey that was caught in the web, which adds more credence to the idea that the evolution of the large eyes, was strictly to allow the spider to catch larger prey while hunting during the nighttime—which the researchers also note, is a much safer time to hunt as there are far fewer predators out looking to eat them.

Digital Ocean announces Managed Databases for PostgreSQL

first_imgYesterday, the team at Digital Ocean, a fully managed and feature-rich database service provider, announced the ‘Managed Databases for PostgreSQL’ as a Valentine gift for the users. The new Managed Databases along with the PostgreSQL support will allow developers to quickly build a scalable, high-performance database cluster with less hassle. One of the interesting features of this new provision is that one need not know anything about the Linux operating system or specific DevOps maintenance tasks. Managed databases take care of some challenges including: Help to identify the optimal database infrastructure footprint Scale infrastructure while business and data requirements grow Help in designing and managing highly available infrastructure and failover processes Implement a complete and reliable backup and recovery strategy Aid in forecasting and maintaining operational infrastructure costs The team at Digital Ocean writes, “You’ll enjoy simple, predictable pricing that allows you to control your costs. Spin up a database node starting from $15 per month or high availability cluster from $50 per month. Backups are included for free with your service to keep things simple. Ingress bandwidth is always free, and egress fees ($0.01/GB per month) will be waived for 2019.” Benefits of Managed Databases A hassle-free database maintenance Managed databases save a lot of time. All the user has to do is, quickly deploy a database, and the databases handle the rest. Users do not have to worry about security patches to the OS or database engine–once a new version or patch is available, just a simple click can enable it. Highly secure and optimized for performance All data in these newly managed databases is encrypted at rest and in transit. One can use the Cloud Firewall to restrict connections to their respective database. The database runs on enterprise-class VM hardware with local SSD storage, thus, giving the user a lightning-fast performance. Easy scalability With Managed Databases, users can scale up at any time without impacting their application, virtually. One can spin up read-only nodes to scale read operations or remove compute overhead from reporting requirements. Automatic failovers If any issue occurs with the primary node, traffic will automatically get routed to the standby nodes. The team at Digital ocean recommends selecting a high-availability option to minimize the impact in case of a failure. Simple and reliable backup and recovery solution Backups are handled automatically and free of cost. Full backups are taken every day and write-ahead-logs are maintained to allow users to restore to any point-in-time during the retention period.

There is no doubt that it is President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt to whom the editorprincipally refers There is no doubttoothat the flotilla affair marks a watershed for Egypt and to a lesser extent for Saudi Arabia Even the notoriously tin ear of President Mubarak to his own peoples sympathy for the Palestinian cause in Gaza could not fail to hear the grinding of the tectonic plates of Middle East change He ordered the immediate opening of the Egyptian crossing into Gaza What we are witnessing is another step perhaps crucial in the shifting strategic balance of power in the Middle East: The cause of the Palestinians is gradually passing out of the hands of Mubarak and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia It is the leaders of Iran and Turkeytogether with President Bashar Al-Assad of Syriawho recognise the winds of change Mubarak appears increasingly isolated and is cast as Israels most assiduous collaborator Mubaraks motives for his dogged support for Israel are well known in the region: He is convinced that the gateway to obtaining Washingtons green light for his son Gamal to succeed him lies in Tel Aviv rather than Washington If Washington is to ignore its democratic principles in order to support a Gamal shoe-init will be because Israel says that this American blind eye is essential for its security To this endMubarak has worked to weaken Hamass standing in Gazaand to strengthen that of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Indeedhe has pursued this policy at the expense of Palestinian unity his regular unity initiatives notwithstanding Egypts one-sided peace brokering is viewed here as part of the problem rather than as part of any Palestinian solution Paradoxicallyit is precisely this posture that has opened the door to Turkey and Iran seizing the sponsorship of the Palestinian cause But standing behind this sharp Turkish reaction to Israels assault on the Turkish ship is a deeper regional riftand this divide stems from the near-universal conviction that the Israeli-Palestinian peace process has failed Its structural pillars have crumbled: The Israeli public no longer believes that land for peace the Oslo principle will bring them security RatherIsraelis believe those who tell them that further withdrawal will only bring Hamas rockets closer The other Oslo pillars also lie broken: The hitherto presumed reversibility of the Israeli settlement project and the hypothetical possibility of last-resort American imposition of its own solution are now understood to have been no more than chimeras Yet Egypt refuses to budge in these changed circumstances even as the shift in the balance of regional power toward the northern tier of Middle Eastern states SyriaTurkeyIranQatar and Lebanon gathers pace Egypt increasingly has only its memory of past grandeur on which to stand Its influence has been on the slide for some time Egypts one card is that it is Gazas other neighbour It has been Egypts acquiescence to the siege of Gaza encouraged by President Abbas in the West Bankwho shares Mubaraks desire to see Hamas weakened that has given Mubarak his stranglehold over Palestinian issues But the Islamic and regional tide will be flowing ever stronger against him after Israels action against the flotilla Already the Arab League is talking of supporting Turkey in any legal action against the Israeli assault on the aid convoy to Gaza The Arab League has also issued a call to other states to break Israels siege on Gaza It is too early to say that such talk marks any turning point in Arab League politics The Arab League is not taken seriously in the regionor anywhere else But it is rather the shifting of the regional strategic balance that marks the locus from where real change may become possible Egypt and Saudi Arabia may conclude that the price of seeing the baton of leadership on such a key and emotive issue pass to non-Arab handsIran and Turkeyis too highand too shameful The near-universal scepticism directed toward the peace process among their own peoples has already left these leaders exposed internally For nearly 20 years these leaders have used their involvement in the process as justification to curb internal dissent; but it is now a tool that has lost its magic They are already paying the price of popular cynicism This is Mubaraks dilemma: stay with the siege and hope America will reward him with Gamals succession; but flouting the winds of change may imperil Gamals very survival In any eventEgypts control of the Palestinian file will never be the same again For
