A former clerk attached to Troy Resources Incorporated was on Friday taken before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on a charge of stealing $1.3 million worth of raw gold from the mining company.Kevon De Freitas denied that he stole the gold on August 24, 2018 at 14 Miles Issano, Mazaruni River, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).The court heard that after the gold had gone missing, a Supernumerary Assistant Superintendent attached to Troy Resources, while in the company of others, visited De Freitas’s home and conducted a search.The prosecution is contending that during the search, 114 pennyweights of raw gold were reportedly discovered hidden in a multi-coloured haversack. When questioned, the defendant allegedly admitted to stealing the gold, and told the officers, “Is a lil hussle I mek.” As such, he was arrested and taken into Police custody.Magistrate McLennan placed DeFreitas on $200,000, and set the case to continue before the Bartica Magistrate on September 14.
The Government Analyst-Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD) recently participated in the Seventh Meeting of Member State Mechanism on Substandard and Falsified (SF) medical products hosted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) at its Geneva, Switzerland headquarters.Guyana was represented at the meeting, which lasted from November 27 to 30, by GA-FDD Director Marlan Cole.According to a statement from the Department, discussions at that meeting targeted problems associated with SF medical products entering the global supply chain, particularly in middle and low-income countries.This problem was highlighted in a Study of the Public Health and Socioeconomic Impact of SF medical products published by WHO in 2017 and reports received by the WHO’s Global Surveillance Monitoring System (GSMS) for SF medical products, a surveillance system that was launched in July 2013.According to the Study by WHO, 1 in 10 or 10.5 per cent of medical productsGA-FDD Director Marlan Cole at the WHO meeting in Switzerland last monthsampled was SF and given the estimated market value of US$300 billion in middle and low-income countries, it equates to over US$30 billion in cost to these countries.In addition, the University of Edinburgh developed an Impact Model for WHO, which was used to estimate the impact of SF antibiotics for the treatment of childhood pneumonia in Sub-Saharan Africa. The model revealed that as many as 72,430 excess deaths can be attributed to SF antibiotics with reduced antibiotic activity and 169,271 excess deaths to SF antibiotics with no antibiotic activity.With regard to WHO’s Global Surveillance Monitoring System, it provides National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs), with a portal to report SF medical products and after four years, over 2000 SF medical products reports were received from 111 countries. Reports were in all therapeutic categories, ranging from cancer medicines to contraceptives and from antibiotics to vaccines. Reports were also evenly split between generic and innovator products with antimalarial and antibiotics being the most frequently reported.Moreover, the meeting also focused on significant works by the Member State Mechanism to fight SF medical products in the following areas: distribution or the supply of SF or “ fake” medical products via the Internet and medical products in-transit; strengthening of regulatory systems to prevent, detect and respond to SF medical products in health systems; guidance for manufacturers, importers, and distributors’ registration; the authorisation of medical products by Member States; and the advancement of a global communication campaign framework to combat the threat of SF medical products using IDEAS – insight, data, engagement, action, and solution.In Guyana, according to the GA-FDD, the first line of defence against SF medical products is enshrined in the Food and Drug Act, Chapter 34:04 and its accompanying regulations, particularly Regulation 78, whereby registration and authorisation of drugs are required based on the reliance (full assessment) for efficacy, quality, and safety by one or more of the following countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada or Australia.In fact, in 2017, an additional pathway for registration was created when the Public Health Ministry and the GA-FDD signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Caribbean Regulatory System (CRS) for assistance with medical products registration. This was in an effort to ensure SF medical products do not enter our health-care system and that of the region.The GA-FDD said too that it has been faced with and also simultaneously advanced litigation regarding the sale, release, registration, and distribution of medical products that are not registered or intended for registration. In this regard and in efforts to protect Guyanese consumers from SF medical products, the Department has received key and critical support from the Public Health Ministry and the Attorney General (AG) Chambers with matters before the courts.On this note, the Department thanked the Government through its Public Health Ministry for its support in efforts to combat this problem with public health and economic implications.“The magnitude of this problem in Guyana is currently unknown; however this exposure and alliance will allow us to double our efforts to prevent, detect and respond to Substandard and falsified-SF medical products in our health-care delivery system, by scaling up wharf and facility inspections, medical products examination and sampling,” the GA-FDD said in its missive on Wednesday.
The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts Tags:#mobile#web Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement marshall kirkpatrick What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Cross-platform mobile push notification and in-app purchase service Urban Airship announced two new features this morning that mobile savvy marketers are sure to find compelling. In a world fast becoming more mobile, more real time and more data-centric, these technologies are very well timed. Hopefully they’ll be self-correcting enough that app users won’t be driven crazy. The company’s new Push Composer is a simple web-based publishing platform for publishing messages that will be delivered to app users’ iOS, Android or BlackBerry screens. Messages can be scheduled ahead of time and delivered to groups of users segmented by a variety of tags. The second new feature, UA Reports, displays daily metrics about notification open rates by time of day. With nearly 10 million notifications sent each day, Urban Airship says it intends to offer mobile marketing benchmarks, best practices for maximizing engagement through push and more data-centric insights in the near future.An Unusual CompanyWe first wrote about Urban Airship eighteen months ago, when the then tiny startup unveiled its plans to act as a technology middle-man for app developers interested in outsourcing the infrastructure required to take advantage of the new push notifications and in-app purchasing on the iPhone. The company was founded by a scrappy group of engineers with a bizzarre story: their previous employer collapsed overnight, offering company computers in lieu of final checks, they built and sold an online bacon delivery website and a number of them were fortunate enough to receive unemployment payments for bootstrapping entrepreneurs under an innovative program from the state of Oregon. Then they built Urban Airship. Led by serial innovator Scott Kveton, the company started landing customers fast and furious.Fast forward to today and the now venture-backed startup says it has more than 7500 customers, using the company’s services in almost 16,000 different apps, and adds an average of 43 new customers each day. In addition to push and in-app sales, the company was powering some of the first experiments with iOS content subscription. Urban Airship’s list of customers is long and interesting, from Target to the Guardian, Warner Brothers, the Vancouver Canucks and Groupon. That’s right – this little startup powers the push notifications for the fastest growing tech company in history. Say what you will about Groupon (I’m no fan) but that’s impressive.As we discussed in depth when it was revealed that push notifications were coming to the Twitter iPhone app, push enables new forms of interaction with mobile apps. Beyond increasing user engagement, push offers users opportunities to interact with apps in ways that are real-time, synchronous and rich with flow. The interruptive nature of push allows for finer-tuned prioritization of certain messages from certain sources. Push is a big deal, and Urban Airship makes it easy and systematic for app developers to implement it.From its humble beginnings, the startup has now grown to 25 employees, has taken over a spacious office in Portland, Oregon and is quickly hiring many of the most cutting edge engineers, designers and sales people in that tech-rich town. The building now houses a number of mobile startups, including former Twitter engineer Alex Payne’s forthcoming BankSimple. A publicly available mobile device testing lab is in the works as well, gathering devices from manufacturers around the world for anyone to come and test their apps on. Moving Beyond Speaking to GeeksUrban Airship says that companies come to it to save time and money on deploying push notifications, but there’s far more than can be done once the customers are in the door. The startup is building new features quickly – some go over well (like RSS to push) and others have been slower to gain adoption, like the feature the company calls “rich media push.”The two features the company is releasing today speak to a new audience, though. While the legacy product is ultimately an API play, the new features adress the needs of marketing organizations. Both features are being tested with existing customers but will be made generally available once that testing is complete.The new Push Composer is like a little blogging platform, or a Twitter client, but for writing Push Notifications. An attractive UI allows anyone to compose short messages, schedule them for delivery and segment the audience based on tags that users may have opted-into or that a mobile app provider applied to people themselves. For example: one group of recipients might like the Portland Trailblazers, another group may be people who have opened a push notification within the previous 24 hours. Tagged groups can be whatever you like. Click send and boom, the message will be sent and received in seconds.At launch the Composer does not allow users to determine what screen in an app gets opened when a notification is viewed, but the company says that may be offered in the future. Right now when recipients view a notification, the app simply opens up its front page.Even more interesting are the new UA Reports. At first the reports are simple. They just track app opens, time in app, and push volume over time.In time, Urban Airship hopes to see what kinds of data their customers want and to offer a wide variety of information based on that data it collects, cross referenced with other data sources. The company says it believes that app developers will eventually make decisions based on the data the reports deliver: what kinds of notifications get the most response? What kinds of features are users best alerted to by push? Which features or content types should be more prominent in the experience of the app? The company says, for example, that one of its magazine customers found that push notifications and icon badges for its mobile apps were being opened more often at 9 PM than at any other time of the day. In response, the magazine now regularly pushes new content and notifications around 8:30 to prime the pump for evening readers.Push notifications are great for keeping users engaged with apps, but some mobile devices handle them better than others. On iOS they are frankly terrible – though rumors are flying that drastic improvements may be forthcoming. Will putting push composition in the hands of marketers lead to notification overload, a declining user experience and consumer backlash? That seems like one of the risks, but one that Urban Airship hopes to tackle with data-based education about best practices. The company says it has one full time engineer dedicated to metrics right now, but does not offer any formal training or guidelines in pushing just right instead of too much.“2011 is the year that mobile apps need to prove their value,” says Urban Airship’s Jason Glaspey in the company’s announcement today. “With thousands of apps fighting for consumer attention and an average app lifespan of one month or less, developers and marketers need powerful tools.”With a full-speed-ahead attitude and plenty of momentum, Urban Airship will now try to provide just that kind of tools. Hopefully the data analysis the company shares with its customers will help keep trigger-happy push composers in check and not lead to an overwhelming flood of notifications. Time will tell. It looks like this new mode of communication is about to become easier and smarter than ever before.
It wasn’t necessarily a textbook performance from the Ohio State men’s basketball team (18-10, 10-5), but it still got the job done Saturday night at Nebraska (14-14, 6-9). Despite a sluggish start, 17 turnovers and two players fouling out, the Buckeyes toppled the Cornhuskers 65-62 in overtime. With the win, OSU’s postseason flame still burns, albeit dimly. Freshman guard JaQuan Lyle poured in 19 points, including a pair of free throws that sent the game into overtime and three key buckets down the stretch in overtime. Alongside Lyle’s strong showing, sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop had 16 points and classmate Jae’Sean Tate had 15 and a dozen rebounds. Junior forward Marc Loving matched Tate’s 15 points. Outside of this quartet, no other Buckeye scored. Both teams got off to horrendous starts, as they settled for jump shots that simply were not falling. OSU shot just 1-of-10 from the field in the first 11:36, while Nebraska missed 11 of its first 14 shots, too. The result of this indolent start was a 6-2 Nebraska advantage in the first nine minutes, with Tate being the only Buckeye to register in the scoring column. It was a forgettable way to get out of the gates. But as it turns out, OSU quickly did forget its lackluster start. The Buckeyes flipped a switch, peeling off a 13-5 run over a nine-minute period to snatch a 15-13 advantage.During that span for the Cornhuskers, a lack of aggressiveness plagued them. They continued to settle for too many jump shots, converting on just one of their six attempts from downtown.More of the same sloppy basketball ensued up to the halftime horn, with Nebraska holding a one-point lead, 22-21, at the break. The 43 combined points made for the lowest total in the first half of a Big Ten game this season. Freshman forward Jack McVeigh led the Cornhuskers with six points, while classmate Glynn Watson Jr. had five points and four rebounds. As a team, Nebraska shot just 26 percent from the field, including a painful 3-of-17 performance from 3-point land. For OSU, only three players — Tate, Bates-Diop and Loving — scored. Loving led the way with 11 points and three rebounds on 3-of-7 shooting. Tate added six points and four boards, while Bates-Diop registered four points, although he needed seven shots to do so. When the second half began, the Buckeyes were noticeably more aggressive. After an opening 3-pointer by McVeigh, OSU started driving to the basket, either getting fouled and going to the free throw line or connecting on easy layups. The Buckeyes’ first 13 points in the second period came from the charity stripe or inside the paint. At the 10-minute mark, amid a 20-5 run, the Buckeyes were leading 41-30.That momentum-shifting stretch was spearheaded by Lyle, who used a combination of the inside and outside game to score 11 straight points for OSU. It started to look like the Buckeyes were pulling away, but the Cornhuskers had other plans. Back-to-back 3-pointers from Watson and McVeigh immediately breathed new life into Nebraska. Then, a few possessions later, junior guard Tai Webster knocked in a 3-pointer from the top of the key, which cut OSU’s lead down to two points and fired up the white-and-red clad crowd. Over the course of the next four minutes, the two teams traded punches. Nebraska got it to as close as one on two separate occasions, but OSU also had an advantage as large as five in that stretch. After slicing OSU’s lead back to one point at the 1:19 mark, Lyle missed a layup, giving it back to the Cornhuskers with a chance to take the lead. Andrew White III didn’t squander the opportunity. The junior guard buried a contested 3-pointer from a few steps beyond the line, giving Nebraska its first lead in 17 minutes. Trailing 56-54, OSU got its chance to counter. Lyle dribbled the ball at the top of the key, as the clock dwindled, eventually taking his man off the bounce and forcing a foul. The freshman composed himself and knocked down the game-tying free throws. A turnover by Nebraska and a last-second heave from freshman Mickey Mitchell clanked off the rim, sending the game to overtime. In the bonus period, Lyle carried the Buckeyes. Loving scored OSU’s first points, but after that, the freshman guard used his size to take his man off the dribble, weaving to the rim for three consecutive layups. The third and final one ended up becoming the game-clincher for OSU after the Cornhuskers’ final few chances came up short.McVeigh led Nebraska with 16 points and four rebounds. Next up for OSU is one of its hardest tests to date, a matchup with No. 8 Michigan State on Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m.

OSU won, 4-3.Credit: Alice Bacani / BuckeyeTV news directorThe Ohio State men’s tennis team has come out of the month of March looking like a lion. After identifying themselves as kings of the Big Ten, the Buckeyes are now ranked number one in the nation for the second time this season.Playing on the road Friday and Sunday against Minnesota and Wisconsin, respectively, the Buckeyes (23-2, 8-0) solidified their spot atop the ITA rankings.Against the Badgers (9-11, 1-6) Sunday, the second and third doubles teams got off to fast starts to earn the point for the Buckeyes.Redshirt-junior Kevin Metka and freshman Herkko Pollanen defeated junior Michael Sinha and sophomore Jakhongir Jalalov, 8-4, while redshirt-junior Hunter Callahan and redshirt-sophomore Chris Diaz crushed sophomore Frederik Strabo and freshman Elliott Sprecher, 8-2.Moving to singles play, Callahan and redshirt-freshman Ralf Steinbach were off first after dominating the back end of the Badgers’ lineup.Callahan defeated Strabo 6-1, 6-0 and Steinbach beat Sinha 6-3, 6-3.Senior Peter Kobelt clinched the match for the Buckeyes off with a 7-5, 6-1 win over sophomore Alexander Kokorev. Kobelt, ranked No. 8 in the country for singles, had lost his previous two matches, but came out strong on Sunday.“A whole lot of tennis is just forgetting about the past and that was my goal (Sunday),” Kobelt said Sunday. “Just try to play good tennis and I was able to do that (Sunday). The results come after that. I was able to get a win … hopefully the wins keep coming. You can only prepare to play good tennis, not win or lose.”Metka, Pollanen and Diaz all won in straight sets as well to sweep all matches and give the Buckeyes the 7-0 win.Friday against the Gophers (9-9, 3-3) the number one doubles team of Kobelt and Steinbach got in on the action along with Callahan and Diaz to give the Buckeyes the doubles point.Kobelt and Steinbach defeated juniors Leandro Toledo and Eric Frueh 8-7 (7-2) while Callahan and Diaz beat junior Mathieu Froment and sophomore Ruben Weber 8-5.In singles, Steinbach and Callahan were off first this time after winning their respective matches.Steinbach took down freshman Jeremy Lynn 6-1, 6-1 and Callahan beat senior Juan Pablo Ramirez 6-3, 6-1.Kobelt was upset by Toledo 6-1, 7-6 (7-5), but shortly after, Metka defeated Frueh 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) to give the Buckeyes the match.A win by Pollanen and loss by Diaz made the final score 5-2.Next the Buckeyes are scheduled for a big non-conference road test at No. 14 Kentucky Wednesday. The two teams played each other Feb. 7, with the Buckeyes winning 4-0.The match against the Wildcats in Lexington, Ky., is set to begin at 2 p.m.
After leading Ohio State’s lacrosse program to its first-ever national championship appearance, coach Nick Myers has signed a five-year contract extension, Ohio State announced Tuesday afternoon. Myers has been the coach at Ohio State for nine seasons and has led the program to the NCAA quarterfinals three times and final four and national championship games once, while posting a career 85-63 record.“We are excited to see Coach Myers’ contract here at Ohio State,” said Janine Oman, senior associate athletic director, student services and sport administration and senior women’s administrator, in a statement. “His focus on student athlete development in all facets of their life is an exemplar for others to follow. He has made a tremendous impact on the Ohio State lacrosse program, but, more importantly, the young men he mentors during their time at Ohio State.”Last season was Myers’ most successful as head coach of the Buckeyes as the team set a program record with 16 wins on his way to a semifinal victory against Towson and championship game loss to Maryland, the same team it lost to in the Big Ten tournament finals. Six All-Americans emerged from last season’s team, including then-junior defenseman Ben Randall, Ohio State’s first-ever first-team All-American.Under Myers, the program was accepted into the Big Ten in 2015 after spending its previous five seasons in the Eastern College Athletic Conference. While in the ECAC, Myers led the team to a conference tournament title in 2013 and a regular season title the following year. Ohio State reached the NCAA quarterfinals in 2013 for the second time in school history before Cornell upset the Buckeyes, 16-6.Myers began his coaching career at Ohio State in 2002 as a volunteer assistant coach for two seasons — including 2003 when the Buckeyes made it to their first NCAA tournament — before joining Butler’s staff in 2004. After the 2005 season, Myers returned to Columbus as the top assistant coach for the Buckeyes and helped to lead the team to its first NCAA quarterfinals appearance in 2008 when it lost to Duke. Myers was promoted to head coach in July of the same year.
The head of Germany’s football federation (DFB) is furious that their own players Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan were seen posing for pictures alongside Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip ErdoganThe midfielders are both of Turkish descent but chose to represent their birth country Germany at international level instead.Ozil and Gundogan posed for photos in London on Sunday with Erdogan and have left the DFB chief Reinhard Grindel unhappy with their actions.“The DFB, of course, respects the special situation for our players with migrant backgrounds, but football and the DFB stand for values that Mr. Erdogan does not sufficiently respect,” read a statement from Grindel, as reported on ESPN.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“Therefore, it is not a good thing that our internationals have let themselves be exploited for his election campaign stunt. It certainly hasn’t helped the DFB’s integration efforts.”Germany team coordinator Oliver Bierhoff was also unhappy over their actions and intends to speak with them at some point in the near future.“I still have absolutely no doubts about Mesut and Ilkay’s commitment to playing for the Germany national team and how much they identify with our values. They were unaware of the symbolism of these pictures, but we cannot endorse it, and we will discuss the matter with the players,” he said.
Jurgen Klopp was left feeling that Liverpool ultimately paid a big price for failing to convert their early dominance into goalscoring opportunities as they fell to a 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on SundayLast season’s Champions League runners-up got off to a promising start at the Bank of America stadium in their United States tour with defender Virgil van Dijk’s first-half header setting the side on course for their fourth win in five pre-season games.However, the players began to fatigue as the game progressed before American forward Christian Pulisic equalised for Dortmund with a penalty.The highly-rated youngster then added a second before Danish winger Jacob Bruun Larsen sealed a 3-1 win for Dortmund.“The beginning of Dortmund was good, then we controlled the game kind of but we didn’t create chances,” Klopp told the club website.“But we scored the goal after a nice set-piece. Set-pieces were probably the most positive thing today. In the second half we played much better against a completely different Dortmund side. Our pressing was much better. Dortmund tried to play football and played our cards, if you want, which helps us a little bit to do this. We won the balls but we didn’t do very good things with the balls we won.”He continued: “The surprise is that we scored the goal in the first half and not in the second half. We had two big chances after set-pieces again with Dom Solanke and Joe Gomez. We had a big, big chance with Ojo. Daniel was in a few good moments. We had these moments and I liked the football we played there.”Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.The German coach lamented the penalty they gave away that enabled Pulisic to equalise for Dortmund.“We had two drinks breaks that were not drinks breaks deep in our own half, around our box. We lost the ball again, had it back and lost it again; Pulisic can go in the box and it’s a penalty. Dortmund scored a similar goal against City. That can happen, I don’t like it but it can happen and it’s easy to explain. On a day like this, you have to stay strong and show desire still or kind of greed that you at least want to keep the result at 1-1,” said Klopp.But overall Liverpool’s inability to create enough chances were what ultimately sealed their fate against Klopp’s former club.“At one moment we could have scored again and had this very tight offside situation. I watched it back and they were both onside but we cannot change that anymore. It felt like that in the game. It would have been two big chances, James Milner alone in front of the goal,” he said.“It doesn’t help really and I don’t want to excuse the result but we had these situations and didn’t, or couldn’t, use them. Then Dortmund scored a second and the third was really too much. The fourth would have been possible after we lost the ball again, you could see morale was really down. We have to learn from it, that’s how it is, and then we have to go again.”Liverpool will next face Manchester City on Thursday morning at 02:05 (GMT +2).

We have to carry on and I’m sure they will do too.”
