President Donald Trump then announced on Twitter that the “invitation is withdrawn!”Golden State visited the White House at the invitation of President Barack Obama after its 2015 championship.Curry said that going to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened in 2016, offered the Warriors a better use of their time than meeting with a president whose policies they disagree with.“Rhetoric and hate and just general disdain from the top, trying to be divisive and whatnot, has had the opposite reaction from what it intended,” Curry said. “We’ve done our part, I think, to try to further that message.”ADVERTISEMENT GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Domestic violenceRanks attached to the Timehri Police Station, East Bank Demerara (EBD) are coming in for harsh criticism for their non-action to effect the arrest of a Timehri man, who attacked and severely beat the mother of his child on April 25, 2019 causing the woman to lose several teeth and sustain other injuries.Nirmala SookwahNirmala Sookwah, 20, was beaten by the father of her child after she refused to continue the relationship with him after suffering domestic violence.“If the Police had told us that they can’t find him, we would’ve accepted that, because at least we would know that they were trying, but up to yesterday (Saturday) I saw this bai, he ain’t hiding, so the Police can easily find him, but they are not trying,” Naresh Sookwah, the woman’s father, told Guyana Times.As such, the man is pleading with the authorities to protect his daughter from the suspect.“The gyal afraid, she can’t live in peace because he deh out here and we ain’t know when he can try something again, because nobody ain’t doing anything to him. We really need to see him arrested; she have a small son to live for,” the elder Sookwah added.As a result of the beating at the hands of the suspect, Sookwah lost several teeth, sustained a broken jaw and nose, and suffered injuries to her left knee.On the night of the incident, Sookwah had already retired to bed in her Lot 131 Hyde Park, Timehri home, when there was a knock on her door followed by the suspect calling out her name.Scared for her life, Sookwah recounted that she did not respond to the calls which caused the suspect to leave. He, however, returned later, broke a window, and gained access to the house.The woman said that she ran out of the house, but was caught by the man and thrown down a hill in the area.She was then further attacked and beaten. A relative went to her aid and the suspect fled the scene.Sookwah’s father had earlier related to this newspaper that his daughter was in an abusive relationship with her attacker, but separated from him two months ago.Sookwah left the relationship after she was severely beaten after questioning her then lover about a sum of money which belonged to her that he allegedly used to purchase a motorcycle. Following the beating and her departure from the home, the suspect has been following her and begging her to resume the relationship.When contacted, Divisional Commander Marlon Chapman assured that stringent efforts were still being made to apprehend the suspect.
Among those who have had strong performances so far include Sarah Darcel, who finished in seventh place in the 200 metre backstroke, sixth in the 100 metre backstroke, and sixth in the 200 metre breaststroke.

She finished in 2:26.78 in the 200 metre backstroke, 1:08.31 in the 100 metre backstroke, and 2:46.98 in the 200 metre breaststroke. Skyeler Kerr meanwhile finished in second place in the 200 metre breaststroke in the boys grouping of 13 and 14 year olds.

CHARLIE LAKE, B.C. – Blue-green algae is now plaguing Charlie Lake but there could be a solution.Earlier this week, Northern Health issued a public advisory saying that the algae can cause a number of health issues if drank, or swam in.When Northern Health was contacted, they said they weren’t going to do anything about the algae in the lake, they also said they haven’t even tested the algae for toxins.- Advertisement -The Ministry of Environment also gave the same response when asked if anything would be done to clean up the lake.However, there is a solution out there to clean up the lake and while it will cost money, it could help long-term.Dirty Dirt Services has a “super pond clarifier” that is a treatment plan done over 3 summers. Results do start immediately, as soon as 18 days.Advertisement Will McInnes says that they are willing to use the treatment on Charlie Lake. It does come at a cost of around half-a-million. He said he has had interest from people who are willing to help pay for the project already. He said the project could be paid for, and the funds recouped afterwards.The formula is non-toxic and would not hurt fish or humans.McInnes says he wants to raise public awareness to the issue, and that something can be done.
In: Matt Targett (Southampton) – £4.1m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Maybe like Mr Targett. The young Saint is enjoying an extended spell in the side due to Ryan Bertrands injury and is a solid player to have on your bench at this moment in time given the fact hes likely to start their next few games. 12 12 12 12 In: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – £8.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The ex-Liverpool man faced more criticism for his finishing on Tuesday night as he missed two good chances against Juventus but we reckon his pace against West Hams backline could be pivotal and net him and few points and possibly a goal too. Clashes with the pedestrian Tottenham and Newcastle defences are coming up too so hell be a good long-term buy. 12 In: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) – £6.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Hes too cheap not to have. The Algerian has been the star of the Premier League season so far and is a must for your team simply on the basis that 44 per cent of players have him. Dont get left behind. Out: Luke Shaw (Manchester United) – £5.7m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The left-back had been in brilliant form and probably would have been a tip to add to your team but, sadly, he suffered a broken leg in midweek and now faces six months out. 12 Out: Pedro (Chelsea) – £9.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The spritely Spaniard has taken a knock and, after the Blues Champions League clash with Maccabi Tel Aviv, Jose Mourinho is sure the player will miss their clash with Arsenal. Hes too expensivee to be an absentee. 12 12 12 12 Out: Per Mertesacker (Arsenal) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The big German is doubtful for the weekend and the Gunner will face Chelsea, Leicester City and Manchester United in the next few weeks if he is fit, so we reckon he wont get too many points. Leave him out until Arsenals form picks up. 12 In: Christian Benteke (Liverpool) – £8.5m – After that stunning overhead kick against Manchester United, the Belgian could be about to go on a goal spree. Out: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) – £10.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The striker is doubtful for Manchester Uniteds match with Southampton so its wise to keep him out of your thinking until hes got at least one more Premier League goal to his name. Out: Willian (Chelsea) – £6.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Another injured Blues star to drop from your team. A good point-scoring start to the season saw many of you throw him into your squad but its wise to ditch him now. 12 Last week was an excellent reminder it’s not always the household names who get all the points in Fantasy Premier League.The team of the week included just one player who finished in the top four last season (Daley Blind), while players like Ritchie de Laet, Wes Hoolahan, Steven Naismith and Odion Ighalo mopped up the points.It’s a wake up call to those persisting with stars from Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United, and may mean you’re lagging behind your rivals.If so, talkSPORT’s crack team of Fantasy Premier League minds have put together this list of six players you need to get this week, and six you should be looking to ditch!Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might need to make this week by clicking the right arrow above… Out: Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham) – £5.0m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A hamstring injury means the Italian centre-back could miss around four games for the Hammers. Hes hardly been a spectacular point scorer so wont be missed too much and it will give you an opportunity to bring in a cheaper player who gets more In: Aleksandar Kolarov (Manchester City) – £5.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – The stern-faced Serbian has been getting points left, right, and centre this season. Manchester City have some decent fixtures coming up too and should continue to keep clean sheets, if he can get the odd assist too then youll be laughing. In: Joe Gomez (Liverpool) – £4.8m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Surprisingly, more teams have opted for Nathaniel Clyne than Joe Gomez out of Liverpools defenders. The English youngster is dirt cheap and getting plenty of points, so pick him up as a cheap alternative. The Reds face Norwich and Aston Villa at Anfield in their next two games so he should get at least one clean sheet, we reckon.
Kevin McMenamin leaving courtTHE case against a former Donegal county footballer for alleged drink-driving last summer has been adjourned after claims that he should have received a certificate from a breathalyser in Irish and English. Kevin McMenamin, 34, of Termon, Co Donegal, appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday on a single charge of driving whilst over the drink-drive limit in July last year. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge.The court heard that Garda Kevin Hynes arrested McMenamin at 5am on July 26 in Ballyraine, Letterkenny, after spotting a black Toyota car being driven from side to side on the road.McMenamin’s eyes were blurred and he was slurring his words, said Garda Hynes, who arrested him and took him to Letterkenny Garda station to be breathalysed.At the station Garda Sean McDaid said McMenamin had behaved in an aggressive manner while being told he had to wait 20 minutes without consuming food or water or smoking before the test could be carried out.“He told Garda Hynes that he would see him again on a night out. He also called him a clown,” said Garda McDaid.Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian questioned Garda Hynes on why there was a 15-minute delay in processing the prisoner.Garda Hynes answered twice that he had been preparing the intoxilyzer machine. When asked the question for a third time, Judge Denis McLoughlin said he believed the garda had answered the question, with Garda Hynes replying: “I don’t know.”Mr Dorrian objected to the the judge interjecting, saying he was entitled to cross-exam the witness.The court heard the breathalyser machine gave a subsequent reading of 52 micro grammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, more than twice the legal drink-drive limit.The court that McMenamin had told gardai he’d had four pints of beer.This print-out, or certificate, was handed into the court.The solicitor then put forward a legal argument that his client was entitled to have the certificate in a bi-lingual format and the one produced by gardai was in English only.He said a similar legal challenge was due before the High Court.Judge McLoughlin said he would not proceed with the case whilst a legal challenge was before the High Court.He said he was also excluding himself from hearing the case again and adjourned the hearing until March 16 for a new date to be fixed.DRINK-DRIVE CASE AGAINST TERMON GAA STAR ADJOURNED OVER IRISH LANGUAGE DEFENCE was last modified: March 4th, 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:chargedrink drivingKevin McMenaminLetterkenny District Court
Wakiso District chairman Matia Lwanga Bwanika: NET PHOTOWakiso District Service Commission officials are under investigation over alleged bribery following their decision to re-advertise 46 positions in the different town councils and municipalities.The District Police Commander, Mr Justus Tashobya, said they have received reports that some members of the service commission are soliciting bribes from job applicants even before the closure of the March 10 application deadline.Mr Tashobya said the bribes are being paid through mobile money.On February 14, an advert placed in the daily newspapers and signed by the Acting Secretary the District Service Commission called for applications to fill 46 positions in different municipalities and town councils that include those of deputy town clerks, senior assistant town clerks, treasurer, senior human resource officer, municipal engineers and accountants.However, staff, who have been serving in some of the positions in acting capacity, have accused the officials of flouting the Local Government standing orders on recruitment, saying they should be given priority before outsourcing new employees. “You cannot advert jobs where there are officials already. Whoever has placed the advert knows that all processes as stipulated in the 2016 guidelines for implementation local government structures have been flouted,” said one of the affected staff in Nansana Municipality, who refused to be named for fear of reprisal.The town clerk Makindye Ssabagabo Municipality, Mr Uthman Ssebadduka, has also written a protest letter to the Wakiso Chief Administrative Officer over the matter.Mr Ssebadduka indicated that whereas he had recommended that staff on probation and acting capacities be officially appointed, he was disappointed to hear that some of their positions have been re-advertised.However, the secretary to the district service commission, Mr Mukasa Sewankambo, defended the job advert, saying it is within the law. The Deputy CAO, Hajj Wasswa Masokoyi, said priority will be given to the current job holders.The District Police Commander, Mr Tashobya, said they will write to telecommunication companies to avail them with printouts as evidence to mobile money bribery payments.Wakiso District comprises seven town councils, nine sub -counties and four municipalities of Kira, Entebbe, Nansana and Makindye/ Ssabagabo.Comments Tags: wakiso district

Founders are always looking for low- or no-cost ways to grow their companies without sacrificing quality. Unfortunately, founders of bootstrapped startups also tend to be exceptionally busy, which means they rarely have time to research all the best options on the market. If you need help finding the best free software for your business, fear not. These tools offer incredible functionality with no strings attached:1. OnPayEntrepreneurs focus so much on their products and go-to-market strategies, they sometimes get bogged down in the day-to-day realities of running a business. No matter how brilliant your business plan or how dedicated your employees, you still have to pay everyone the right amount on time if you want to keep your team together and productive.If a payroll service doesn’t fit in the budget quite yet, OnPay’s payroll calculator lets you figure out exactly how much to pay employees and how much to withhold for taxes. It can also figure out deductions for 401(k) and HSA contributions. If you have a custom deduction like a voluntary charitable contribution, you can include that, too.2. Google AnalyticsEvery company with a website should use Google Analytics. As the king of the internet, Google can help you understand the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns and gain insight into the sources of your web traffic.Plenty of other companies compete in the crowded analytics space, but Google’s free options provide everything small companies need. You can access intuitive charts, detailed reports, and more, then share your findings with your teams through other Google products to design more effective marketing plans. If you decide you need more juice, Google has premium options as well.3. BplansWhen an investor or potential partner wants to see your business plan, do you know how to write a great one? If not, you’re in luck, because Bplans has all the templates and advice you need.

Don’t be afraid of committing to an email service you may not like down the road — for free and paid subscribers alike, MailChimp is one of the best options on the market.5. SurveyGizmoSmall businesses need to know how their customers feel.

You can collect up to 100 responses per survey and ask questions with a variety of answer styles (multiple choice, short answer, rating scale, etc.). Again, this tool is better suited to businesses with smaller customer bases looking to expand, but the paid tools for larger companies are more than worth the investment.6. SlackInternal communications shouldn’t slow down your productivity. With Slack, you can take advantage of tools like instant messaging, video calls, file sharing, and more for $0 a day.The free plan lets you keep 10,000 searchable messages on hand, just in case you need to prove to someone that you definitely called the winner of last night’s game. Slack doesn’t limit channels on the free plan, so you can create new channels for every project, interest, team, or whatever else suits your needs.7. ApptivoMost CRM tools feel packed with unnecessary features and designed for companies that have thousands of employees. Apptivo is different. Apptivo’s free plan allows you to connect up to three users and provides all the basic functionality a growing company needs in a CRM without any of the fluff.Paid plans start at just $8 per user per month, so even if you outgrow the free option, you won’t have to break the bank to keep things running. Until you hire new people, though, you shouldn’t need to upgrade. The free plan includes everything from opportunity management to notifications. If you have a small team and need some help to boost your sales, look no further.As a small business owner, you might feel like everyone’s out to get a piece of your income. These great tools prove that’s not the case. Instead of shelling out cash to handle every business function, keep more of your money and use these free options so you can build on a budget.
