Accused Linden paedophile on the run

first_imgDespite repeated checks by the police, they cannot locate the man who allegedly sexually molested a nine-year-old relative some three months ago in the mining town of Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice).This is according to Police Commander of Region 10, Superintendent Hugh Winter, who told Guyana Times on Monday that the recent advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) was to have the man charged with rape of a child under the age of 16.The suspect, who is in his 60s, would have been hauled before the court of law in the upcoming week.However, he has been on station bail for about three months, pending investigations and advice from the DPP’s office. Following the advice from the DPP, ranks in Linden visited his home but the man was not there. According to the Commander, residents told the cops that they had not seen or spoken to the man for many weeks.Meanwhile, according to a police source, it is believed that the man used the opportunity of such a lengthy period of investigations/advice from the DPP to go into hiding.As a result of his absence in his community, and the futile attempts by the police in Region 10 to locate him presently, the next step will be to have a police Wanted Bulletin issued for the rape suspect, this newspaper was told.The recommendation from the DPP’s office to have the man charged for rape of a child under 16 came just before the Christmas holidays.The suspect reportedly sexually molested the child twice during her weekend visit to her relatives in the month of September.Reports are that the child left her residence on September 27 (Friday) to spend the weekend with relatives in the mining town and returned home on September 29 (Sunday) in a withdrawn state.The little girl then told her maternal aunt and other relatives about what transpired during her brief vacation with her relatives.“She said that she loves her aunty but that she cannot go back there [at their home]. She said that the uncle, her aunty’s husband, is a wicked man, she kept saying he is a wicked man when we asked her why she did not want to go back. Then she started telling us one by one what happened to her,” the grandmother had previously told this publication.The elderly woman had explained that the man took her granddaughter along with his two grandchildren to “Blue Water Lake” and a creek in “Buck Town” between Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon under the pretence of teaching the young children to swim.However, he allegedly touched the child’s private parts inappropriately despite the child telling him to stop.last_img read more

Apples new file size limit lets you download 200MB apps without WiFi

first_img Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? A new download limit has arrived. Apple With Apple’s WWDC 2019 right around the corner, the company has made a change to its App Store that could make downloading apps a bit easier. But those on limited data plans should be wary.Apple’s cellular download limits for apps increased this week from 150MB to 200MB in the App Store. The change was spotted earlier by 9to5Mac. This means users will not see a message telling them to connect to Wi-Fi to download apps below the new file size limit. The last time Apple changed the download limits was September 2017, bumping it up from 100MB to 150MB. It tends to make the change every few years as cellular data services improve, such as in 2012 when the jump from 3G to 4G spurred the company to increase the data limit to a whopping 50MB. With 5G networks currently being tested by T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, the iPhone maker seems to be prepping for the jump in speed coming. Apple didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.  Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

Reliving college memories

first_imgSneaking out of the classrooms, bunking the afternoon lectures and gathering around at the college canteen to treat your taste buds, naturally brings back the smile of nostalgia. Recently, Café Knosh of The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel took me to a trip down the memory lane. The ongoing festival serves the signature dishes from some popular Delhi colleges.Though located in an obscure zone, the appetizing aroma of the food and the beautiful ambience makes Café Knosh an enticing place to reminisce the good old college days over a cutting chai. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSituated on the third floor of the hotel, the very first moment of stepping into the café gave me the feel of those typical college canteens (but of course the cafe is cleaner and classy). I would love to give a 10 on 10 to the vibrant interiors. The colourful cold drink bottles, books stalked in the shelves, a replica of the basketball court adjacent to the canteen and a bus stop dummy beautifully justifies and enhances the overall theme of the festival. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveWhile I absorbed the artistic and aesthetic ambience of the café, I was served with a glass of refreshing orange juice. While I was still struggling with the thought of what to start with (which I always do), I was enlightened by one of the hotel staff (who joined me at the lunch table) that a delhite would anytime grab the bite of chole-bhature over everything else, and so I did the same. The fluffy bhaturas, which did not have even a trace of excess oil, perfectly complimented the spicy yet a bit tangy taste of chole. It was followed by the Pav-Bhaji. Since Pav-Bhaji is something that stimulates my cravings, I couldn’t resist but dig my spoon in the bowl to taste it. Against my expectations, it couldn’t excite my taste buds. But I won’t mind neglecting such a minor disappointment as Rajma Chawal, served afterwards, compensated for the Pav-bhaji. Balanced taste and well-cooked beans actually melt in the mouth. But what won my heart was kadhi-chawal. Though I am not a crazy avid kadhi lover as most of the north Indians are, the quirky taste of the soft pakodas drenched in the yummy curry, fascinated me to bits. With this, I progressed towards the south Indian platter that had masala dosa, Idli and Vada served with three different kinds of chutneys including that of coconut, tomato, and mint. The colorful and fragrant salver took my sense of smell to new heights.So, if the talks are revolving around the canteen food, how can you miss out Maggie, an all time favorite snack? I would delightfully call Café Knosh the mecca of the Maggie lovers. You will find plenty of options, from all veggie Maggie to the chicken masala Maggie, which will explore your taste buds to an explosion of zesty flavor that you have loved all your life.Here I reached the end of a wholesome meal without a dessert but a sizzling cutting chai which indeed preserved the feel of chatting-eating in the college canteen on a rainy day. After such a hearty meal I carried the memories of good food and hospitality that surely will keep prompting me to revisit a place like Café Knosh.last_img read more

Young Entrepreneurs Are Applying the Power of Big Data to the Real

first_img Much is written about the vital role of big data for corporate decision-making. In my own state of Utah, companies like Domo and Omniture (now Adobe) spin the cash register with breathtaking advances using big data for more accurate and timely executive action.Related: You Can Become a Data Scientist. Yes, You.Even my iPhone fitness app just alerted me of its use of big data to customize a more effective experience to my needs and goals. But while data has been collected for centuries, only in the last few decades have we had the computing power to harness and put the data to practical use.My recent attendance at a big data conference in New York City prompted me to consider the future applications of fresh technology that harnesses vast data repositories. Experts from Under Armour, The New York Giants, Notre Dame, The Women’s Tennis Association and Stanford University unfolded the future of professional sports and healthcare. While these experts in prescriptive analytics, clinical risk intervention and predictive analytics spoke of current and future applications, a dozen or more young entrepreneurs sat in the back of the room creating big data dreams of their own.Two 15-year-old students from Business Technology Early College High School (BTECH) in Queens, New York dazzled me with big-picture thinking about the social implications of harnessing big data while protecting our future. The teens shared very entrepreneurial thoughts of how to deliver genomic big data solutions without diminishing individual self-worth.One young man used the example of applying genomic big data to people to create a “Superman” in the future. Yet, he noted that if everyone were Superman, no one would be.  In other words, no one would be unique, stand out from the crowd. Wow! That’s big picture thinking that reminds me of a science fiction novel. Related: Indirect Data Is the Travel Industry’s Secret WeaponAlex Torres, a 20-year-old entrepreneur studying at St. John’s University in Queens, New York, represented the Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship  (NFTE) at the event. As an alumnus of the NFTE program, which is focused on teaching the entrepreneurial mindset to under-resourced youth, Torres has taken the classroom experience and started his own organization.He’s interested in big data that benefits the mental health industry. His non-profit startup, You’re Not Alone, focuses on encouraging young people suffering from depression. His early-stage business interfaces with school districts that recognize the magnitude of this growing problem in today’s schools. He wants to make sure that while digital-data explosion and personalized technology continues to ramp, we remember that people still need to connect with people one on one, face to face, in real time.Sarah Currid, Development Director for NFTE, says SAP (Systems, Applications and Products) has been a great corporate partner for the student entrepreneurs her organization serves. She indicates NFTE has impacted more than 600,000 young people to date with an eye on entrepreneurial futures around the world.In a world where 74 million young people are currently unemployed, NFTE believes exposure to their project-based learning program makes youth more career-ready and prepared for employment by high-skill industries and by cutting edge companies like SAP. Currid says thousands of new businesses have grown out of the students’ participation in the NFTE program. Companies like SAP collaborate to provide new solutions for big business and emerging leaders in healthcare and sports. Since their native language is digital, it seems apparent that we are wise to give a listening ear to young entrepreneurs thinking outside the big-data box for solutions of the future.If big data is accessible to these enterprising teens, there’s no longer any excuse for small business owners the world over not to use this resource for their own advances. With inexpensive online tools, you can integrate your consumer data with massive collections of information about your target market, general mobile usage, specialized industry data and so much more.Related: Multicultural Marketing Is All About the MetricsBasically, the only limit to the use of big data for young entrepreneurs and small companies is your imagination.  Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
