ASSAULT TRIAL COLLAPSES AS WITNESS TELLS JUDGE: “I WILL SORT THIS OUT MYSELF”

Posted on by

first_imgTHE trial of three Polish men on charges of aggravated assault collapsed at Letterkenny Circuit Court after the alleged victim refused to give evidence against them, telling a judge: “I will sort this out myself when I get back.”Before the court in a trial before a jury were Przemeek Kieloch, 44A Glencar Park, Letterkenny, Arkadiusz Laskowski, 29 Whitethorn Grove, Letterkenny and Wojcieck Loiskowski, pictured, 60 Cnockard Park, Letterkenny.The prosecution alleged the men were part of a gang which burst into a house in the town in March 2012 and beat Jaroslav Lupinski. DPP lawyer Patricia McLaughlin, outlining the case to the jury, said the assault case was serious in that the victim had been the subject to an attack which involved him being hit with an iron bar as well as being repeatedly punched.But there was shock in court No 2 in Letterkenny when Mr Lupinski was asked to give evidence via video link from Poland where he is serving a prison sentence.He repeatedly told Ms McLaughlin that he was assaulted but that he would not be giving evidence against the men.His view – translated by an interpreter in the Letterkenny court room – was that he wanted to return to Ireland to give his evidence. He is due to be released in just six weeks.“Nothing was done in my case for two years and now suddenly everyone wants to do something,” complained the father of two.He told Ms McLaughlin: “You can throw this (the case) in the bin.”Judge Comerford told Mr Lupinski that under Irish law he had to answer questions put to him.But the alleged victim said: “I will sort this out myself when I get back (to Ireland).”The judge warned that Mr Lupinski had just committed a “very serious criminal offence”.“The Polish authorities should be contacted and told what has happened with this witness,” he said.However he agreed Mr Lupinski was not in contempt of court because he was appearing from a Polish court room.The judge asked the interpreter to tell the alleged victim that the prosecution had been brought and that he was obliged to cooperate.“I have no time for this sillyness – the court can put it into the bin,” replied Mr Lupinski.“That might be Irish law, but it’s not Polish law. I will just deal it with myself.”The three accused men sat in court watching the exchanges.Defence lawyers asked for the case to be thrown out, on the grounds they would be unable to cross-examine Mr Lupinski who was refusing to give evidence.Ms McLaughlin asked for an adjournment whilst she sought the opinion of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).When the case resumed she told the judge that the DPP had advised that a Nolle prosequi be entered in all three cases – effectively dropping the case against the three men.It’s understood Mr Lupinski is due back in Letterkenny in mid-June.ASSAULT TRIAL COLLAPSES AS WITNESS TELLS JUDGE: “I WILL SORT THIS OUT MYSELF” was last modified: April 30th, 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:assaultcase collapsedcourtJaroslav Lupinski.letterkennyPOLISHlast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We talked about spraying Sunday but we did not because it got windy. We are starting this morning to get that going so we can plant beans at a decent time. The sunlight is giving the weeds a head start. There is some marestail getting started out there.It looks like there is some rain in the forecast but it doesn’t look like anything heavy. My attention is on the temperature. It looks like late this week there are temperatures in the 70s. We just haven’t been warm here.We have been lacking sunshine and heat. I think we are going to get that. If it gets fit here mid-week, I think we are going to go ahead and start planting if we don’t get that rain. I don’t see any toad strangler rains in the forecast yet. We are still a little what we call goobery. It is dry on top but underneath it is still like Play Dough.I think we’ll see a lot of burndown spray applications around here today but there won’t be planters rolling just yet. We prefer planting in May to begin with and if we get pushed into May by the weather that is probably a good thing. We have some heavier dirt here. Once the calendar says May 1, though, we hit it hard.Soil moisture is adequate. The tiles are still running a little. We don’t have anything near the droughty conditions in some parts of the country.In some black, worked ground, the soil temp three or four inches down is at 46 degrees this morning. This should be warming up the quickest and it is a little chilly yet. Cold and wet is not a good combination in our area. A little cold rain on top of that usually spells disaster.The tile plow is my tool that keeps me from doing something dumb with the planter. This time of year tile keeps me from looking at what the neighbors are doing.last_img read more

Local FFA Chapter Partners with Ronald McDonald House Charities to Clean Up Communities and Support Families

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio FFA has partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio (RMHC) to create a statewide Community Clunker Clean Up. Ohio FFA chapters, including West Holmes FFA, are working to clean up their communities by removing and donating used farm equipment and vehicles to benefit RMHC. The Ohio FFA chapter that secures the most donations, of at least five vehicles, will receive a $10,000 prize, generously donated by Telhio Credit Union.To support West Holmes FFA, community members should call 800-332-8201 to schedule a convenient pick up of the used vehicle or equipment and use the promotional code OH0017 to ensure the donation is associated with the local FFA chapter. Funds raised through auction of the donated item will directly support RMHC families. Donations may qualify for tax deductions.Each vehicle donated on average provides enough funding to allow a family with an ill or injured child to stay for a week at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House.“We encourage the Holmes County community to share this opportunity with family and friends as every vehicle donated makes a life-changing impact,” said Jaime Chenevey. “All vehicles are accepted including – cars, trucks, boats, tractors and motorcycles. We are excited to help clean up the local community while also helping families in their time of need.”FFA is a dynamic youth organization dedicated to providing students with premier leadership, personal growth and career success. FFA members are preparing for leadership roles in agricultural science, business and technology. West Holmes FFA is taking part in this charitable effort to help families in need while also teaching students the importance of lending a hand and giving back. West Holmes FFA has 54 members who are part of the Ohio FFA Association made up of more than 25,000 members. Together, Ohio FFA chapters can make a collective impact to improve the quality of life for others while creating lasting leadership skills for their careers. More information is available at ohioffa.org/foundation.Open 365 days a year, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio gives families a home-away-from-home directly across the street from Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The organization provides support for families of children who are hospitalized by providing the ability for their parents to stay near them. The house offers comfortable bedrooms with private baths, fully-equipped kitchens with dining areas, play rooms, laundry facilities, a meditation room, exercise room and informal gathering areas. Home-cooked meals are provided every day and other services are available.

Chelsea went onto win 1-0 thanks to Michy Batshuayi’s goal.“It was very funny that it was rejected, I don’t know if it was offside,” said Promes. “But afterwards, of course, I don’t buy anything from it. You can see it in two ways. I could say in my favour that it was not offside, but we have to accept the VAR. “I think the central defender was still there and he was still changing direction. I feel that I came from behind the shot when the ball had already left.”He added: “There was a big battle and ultimately you hope that we will at least have a draw. So it is extra bitter that we are now empty-handed.” last_img read more

Who Hates The Patriots The Most

And for a large subset of that group, that specifically means hate-watching the New England Patriots.It’s no secret that winning five Super Bowls, 25 playoff games and 196 regular season games in a span of 17 years — not to mention breaking some rules along the way — will earn you a few enemies. But has New England’s nearly two-decade reign of terror over the NFL made them as universally despised as it seems? Have they reached the New York Yankees’ Evil Empire status? We decided to put it to a test.We commissioned SurveyMonkey Audience to conduct a poll of NFL fans in early September,1Specifically, the poll was conducted among a national sample of adults ages 18 and older, from Sept. 1-7. Only responses from self-described NFL fans (including those who labeled themselves “casual” fans) were included in the analysis. tracking how many would classify each franchise among their three favorite — and least favorite — teams. The survey also asked respondents to assign a favorability rating to a randomly drawn subset of teams, which we used to further judge the admiration — and, more importantly, the vitriol — between fan bases.It should be noted that the Patriots are among the most popular teams in our database (cough, bandwagon), with more than 16 percent of all NFL fans listing them among their favorite teams. That ranks third in the league, trailing only a pair of historic NFL bluebloods: the Green Bay Packers (23 percent) and Dallas Cowboys (19 percent). But they’re also one of the two teams — along with the Cowboys — who stand head and shoulders above the rest of the league in terms of hatred from other fanbases. More than 26 percent of fans polled listed New England as one their three least-favorite teams; only Dallas checked in higher at 31 percent. (No. 3 were the Baltimore Ravens at 13 percent.) 32Jacksonville Jaguars1.832Kansas City Chiefs3.7 Surveying 2,290 Americans who described themselves as NFL fans, conducted from September 1-7, 2017.Source: Surveymonkey Audience Does this mean the Cowboys and all the Jerry World glitz are actually more disliked than the Patriots? Not necessarily. A good amount of the Cowboys hate is accounted for by deep-seated rivalries with their fellow NFC East teams. Patriots hatred is far more egalitarian.For example, the fan groups who hate Dallas the most — Philadelphia and Washington — really, really hate them: A staggering 50 percent of fans who ranked either the Eagles or Redskins among their top three teams also ranked the Cowboys among their bottom three.The Patriots, by contrast, racked up their high dislike rate without the benefit of such intense hatred from specific fan bases. No single group of fans even cracked 35 percent, in terms of the share who ranked New England among their bottom three teams. But the Pats also collected a good amount of hate from a diverse spread of some of the league’s largest fan bases, which nearly helped them catch the Cowboys as the league’s most disliked team.Here’s the rundown of the fan bases who most frequently listed the Patriots among their three least favorite teams: 5Pittsburgh Steelers14.84Pittsburgh Steelers11.3 4Seattle Seahawks15.14Oakland Raiders11.3 9Philadelphia EaglesNFC East2.929.9 ⋮ 27Tampa Bay Buccaneers4.628Houston Texans5.1 24Oakland RaidersAFC West3.125.6 FAVORITE TEAMIN TOP 3 8Tennessee TitansAFC South1.430.0 3New England Patriots16.43Baltimore Ravens13.2 The most loved — and hated — teams in the NFLShare of NFL fans who ranked a given team among the their three favorite, and least-favorite, teams 7Buffalo BillsAFC East1.430.4 25Kansas City ChiefsAFC West2.025.4 RK▲▼FAN BASE▲▼DIVISION▲▼SHARE OF FANS▲▼PUT PATS IN BOTTOM 3▲▼ 1New York GiantsNFC East3.8%34.7% 24Kansas City Chiefs5.724Detroit Lions5.9 Perhaps surprisingly, given that their favorite team beat the Pats in two Super Bowls over the last 10 years, fans of the New York Giants win the crown as the group that hates New England most, with 34.7 percent of them ranking the Pats among their bottom three teams. (Granted, the poll was conducted in the middle of a pennant race between the Red Sox and the Yankees — so there’s no telling what lingering Boston-New York resentment carried over.) Add in animosity from a handful of other huge fan bases — the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks (all of whom the Pats have beaten in the playoffs this decade) — plus leftover resentment from fans of the Carolina Panthers (who apparently have really long memories) and Indianapolis Colts (for whom it’s unclear how much hate is motivated by DeflateGate and how much by the Peyton Manning-Tom Brady rivalry), and there are very few corners of America where Patriots fans won’t be behind enemy lines.But look on the bright side, Patriots fans: In order to be at the top of the “hate” list, you have to be successful. The top six teams on our list have combined for 24 Super Bowl wins. By comparison, the bottom of the list is filled with teams that are either relatively new or simply inoffensive because they haven’t won many playoff games. And the biggest congratulations are in order for the Kansas City Chiefs, who are currently No. 1 in FiveThirtyEight’s rankings and are also the least disliked team in America, according to the poll. What’s more, this poll was conducted before Kansas City knocked off the Patriots in the NFL season opener.Check out our latest NFL predictions. 2Pittsburgh SteelersAFC North5.333.0 29Los Angeles RamsNFC West1.521.6 29Los Angeles Rams4.229Indianapolis Colts4.8 19Cincinnati BengalsAFC North1.726.4 15Atlanta FalconsNFC South3.028.2 7Chicago Bears12.47Cleveland Browns11.2 14Miami DolphinsAFC East2.528.2 23Detroit Lions5.823Miami Dolphins6.1 4Indianapolis ColtsAFC South1.932.0 13Chicago BearsNFC North4.528.4 9San Francisco 49ers11.19New Orleans Saints9.4 17Baltimore RavensAFC North2.427.3 21Houston TexansAFC South2.526.3 Which fan bases hate the Patriots the most?Among respondents who identified themselves as an NFL fan, share who also put the Patriots in their three least favorite teams 18Detroit LionsNFC North2.127.1 12Green Bay PackersNFC North8.329.1 27Washington RedskinsNFC East2.223.0 26Dallas CowboysNFC East6.925.3 23Arizona CardinalsNFC West2.325.7 11Jacksonville JaguarsAFC South0.629.3 10New York Giants10.410Buffalo Bills9.3 LEAST-FAVORITE TEAMIN TOP 3 1Green Bay Packers23.0%1Dallas Cowboys30.7% 31Tennessee Titans3.931Tampa Bay Buccaneers3.9 25Indianapolis Colts5.325Los Angeles Chargers5.5 30Buffalo Bills4.030Tennessee Titans4.5 5Denver BroncosAFC West4.931.6 22New Orleans SaintsNFC South4.425.8 —New England PatriotsAFC East5.9— Surveying 2,290 Americans who described themselves as NFL fans, conducted from September 1-7, 2017.Source: Surveymonkey Audience ⋮ read more

Wrestling Kyle Snyder named Big Ten Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the

Posted on by

OSU junior Kyle Snyder shows off his gold medal at the Welcome Back event for OSU Olympians. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorOne of the most decorated athletes in Ohio State history, senior heavyweight wrestler Kyle Snyder, is adding another accolade to his list Wednesday as he was named Big Ten Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the Year.This is the second time in three years that an Ohio State wrestler has been given the honor, after Logan Stieber won the award in 2015.“I’m honored to win this incredible award, especially because of what Jesse Owens means to the Big Ten and specifically Ohio State,” Snyder said in a press release. “To be in the company of the many exceptional student-athletes who have earned this award in the past is humbling.” Snyder won a gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, making him the youngest Olympic and world champion in United States history at 20 years old.During the past year, Snyder also won both Big Ten and NCAA titles in 2017, marking the second straight year he finished on top of those respective tournaments. Snyder was a perfect 17-0 over the course of the 2016-17 season. He helped lead Ohio State to a second-place finish at the NCAA championships and to the second Big Ten title in the past three years.Snyder also spent much of the past season traveling, competing in the Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix in Russia at the end of January — where he won a gold medal — and then traveled with the U.S. team to Iran in February, where it came home with the silver medal. From Aug. 21-26, Snyder will travel with the U.S. Senior World Team to Paris to participate in the Paris 2017 World Wrestling Championships. During his last trip to the tournament in 2015, he came away with a gold medal, making him the youngest American to win the highest honor at only 19 years old. “I could not have achieved any of my success without the constant help and encouragement of my family, coaches, teammates and friends,” Snyder said. “I love competing for Ohio State and representing my country.” read more

Page Views for Print Magazines

Posted on by

first_imgDeSilva + Phillips, the New York-based media banking firm, published a report yesterday on the state of celebrity media. If you’re in the business of celebrity media—particularly the print side—it’s a must read. Spoiler alert: The outlook is, uh, not so good.You can read FOLIO:’s full synopsis of D+P’s report here.But here’s one interesting point I didn’t include in the write-up. On page 12, Ken Sonenclar, the author of the report, makes an interesting argument—and possibly invents a new metric–for celebrity magazine publishers wrestling over the ad dollars fleeing print for the Web:”Celebrity magazines offer a degree of reach that even the dominant websites should envy. The best way to view this is via the language of the Web, where many celebrity magazine “page views” dwarf web page views. Consider US Weekly. In a four-issue month, the magazine will publish 384 pages (96 pages/issue). Taking the magazine’s recent average circulation of 1.9 million, and assuming a conservative pass-along multiplier of three, yields in excess of 2 billion page views for US Weekly per month. That is seven times the page views of TMZ, the Web site with the most page views.” Calculating page views for print magazines. Did we just invent a new, viable metric here? Or is it merely the last (faint) gasps of desperation for a dying medium?last_img read more

Best DVRs for cord cutters

Posted on by

first_img Mentioned Above Amazon Fire TV Recast Read CNET’s review Now playing: Watch this: Josh Goldman/CNET Though the Roamio OTA Vox is discontinued, you can still find it on sale. It’s not as fast as the Bolt but works in the same way. Try to get the lifetime option and you won’t have to pay ongoing fees. Read CNET’s review 38 The Tablo Quad is the latest version of the popular cord-cutting DVR and goes all-in on features. There’s room for an internal drive and the inclusion of four tuners should cater for even the most demanding users. It’s not the easiest device to setup though, and its device compatibility doesn’t live up to the same power-user expectations. AirTV: Best supplement for Sling TV Sarah Tew/CNET Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. $229 Types of OTA DVR: Set top vs. network streamer? Sarah Tew/CNET The are two main types of DVR: a traditional set top, which connects directly to a single TV via an HDMI output, or a network streamer, which connects to your home network and streams to your TVs (via streamer like a Roku or, in the case of Recast, Amazon Fire TV) and other devices (phones and tablets) in the home or on the go. The TiVo Bolt OTA is a traditional set-top (which also has in-home streaming) while the AirTV and Amazon Fire TV Recast are straight network streamers. A set-top is best for people who usually watch on one TV, while a network device is for people who want to watch on multiple devices — say a tablet, phone and a living room TV. In general a network streamer is the more flexible option, and can better complement live TV streaming apps or services like Netflix. Other features to look for Regardless of which style of DVR you choose, there are some features common to both that you should look for. Two or more HD tuners — When it comes to HD tuners, the more your device has the merrier. The bare minimum is two so you can record two channels at the same time, or watch one while you record another, but heavy antenna heads might appreciate even more. 1TB or more of storage — Depending on the device you have, a terabyte of storage space should offer about 150 hours of programs. But if you choose a device such as the TiVo which automatically records shows it “thinks you like,” you could run out very quickly. Which is why you also need… The ability to add extra storage via USB or SD card — An external hard drive is an excellent option, providing your DVR doesn’t need a proprietary model. Generally, a 1TB external hard drive is cheap at about 50 bucks. 02-amazon-fire-tv-recastA 14-day program guide is essential on a modern DVR. Sarah Tew/CNET 14 days of guide data — While seven days is really the minimum useful amount, two weeks gives you more flexibility. No ongoing fees — Most people cut the cord to save money, so paying yet another monthly fee doesn’t make a ton of sense. TiVo does offer a lifetime service option so you pay for the device and guide data upfront. DirecTV Now, Sling TV, YouTube TV, Hulu and more: Live TV channels compared: Here’s how the top 100 channels stack up.Amazon Fire TV Recast review: One of the best cord-cutter companions yet. See at TiVo Sarah Tew/CNET Is it a streamer or is it a DVR? While the Stream plus is not quite there yet, some upcoming improvements — the ability to watch a still-recording program from the start and a full 14-day guide — should make this little streaming box more attractive. Amazon Fire TV Recast: Best DVR for cord cutters 17 Photos Share your voice Review • Amazon Fire TV Recast review: One of the best cord-cutter companions yet See it The AirTV has its pluses, and it is the cheapest of the three, but it’s really designed to complement a Sling TV subscription by adding local channels. So that’s an extra $25 a month on top.When paired with a Sling TV subscription, the AirTV provides the local channels that the service lacks. While you can use it on its own without paying extra money per month, the Amazon Fire TV Recast offers a better overall experience. And you need to add an external hard drive (not included) to make the AirTV function as a true DVR. Read CNET’s review See at Amazon Amazon Fire TV Recast Read CNET’s review Channel Master Stream Plus See at Amazon See at Channel Master 2:14 Read CNET’s hands-on Read CNET’s review There are currently three standout products to consider when buying a cord cutting DVR: the Amazon Fire TV Recast, the AirTV and the TiVo Bolt OTA. Each has its own unique features and capabilities, but there’s one I’d recommend to beginners and old hands alike. Let’s dive in.Disclaimer: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page.My top three picks TiVo Bolt OTA: Best set-top DVR Dan Ackerman/CNET Comments Sarah Tew/CNET If you want a traditional set-top DVR, the TiVo Bolt OTA is your best option. While it’s pricier than the other products here (with service included), it also offers a ton of features including streaming apps, packaged with TiVo’s superb interface. While TiVo has the best name recognition of the three devices, the Bolt is not the “gotcha” you would expect from a company that basically invented the modern DVR. The Bolt relies a little too heavily on streaming apps and it’s twice as expensive — or more — than the other two.  See at Tablo Three more optionsNone of those top three appeal to you? I’ve also reviewed a trio of other OTA DVRs that I didn’t like as much. They still have appeal for certain users, however. If you live in an area with good access to TV broadcast channels, putting up an antenna is an easy and inexpensive (read: free) way to get the shows you want without paying for cable. And hooking a DVR to that antenna enables you to unlock the full potential of those broadcasts: saving them to watch later, skipping commercials and even, in some cases, streaming them to watch on multiple TVs or outside the home.The downside, of course, is that “free” turns into, well, not free, especially with DVRs that charge a monthly service fee. A bare-bones DVR like the Channel Master Stream Plus starts at about $150 while a TiVo with all the bells and whistles is about $500 after you pay the lifetime service fee. But compared to the cost of a live TV streaming services like DirecTV Now or YouTube TV, even the most expensive antenna DVR will pay for itself eventually. TiVo Roamio OTA Vox See at Amazon Preview • Amazon Fire TV Recast: The antenna DVR with Alexa starts at $230 10 old cables you should keep around (and 6 to toss) Cord Cutters (OTT) News • The Amazon Fire TV Recast DVR is back on sale for $190 TiVo Bolt OTA vs Amazon Fire TV Recast: which DVR should… Nuvyyo Tablo Quad: Best DVR for tweakers CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Tags The Amazon Fire TV Recast is my pick for most people looking to cut the cord.It’s not perfect — it really needs a Fire TV stick to work (and a Prime membership is also helpful) — but its combination of features and flexibility put it over the top. At $220-plus it’s not cheap, but at least it comes with an onboard hard drive. And there’s no monthly fee.While you’ll need a Fire TV Stick to watch on a TV, the lack of any ongoing fees makes the Recast very attractive. Amazon says it is also working to improve the visibility of live TV within its interface, which will make it even more easy to use. DVRslast_img read more
